Topic: Touch (the sense of touch) (08/05/10)

TITLE: Her Physician

She stole through town,
Crowds milling ‘round;
Though weak from her condition,
Her heart of faith
Could hardly wait
To touch the Great Physician.

Her constant bleed
Would not recede
Despite much medication;
For twelve long years
Through trials and tears
Found no alleviation.

She’d heard, the One
Called David’s Son
Was coming to their region;
“This One”, they said
“Could raise the dead,
Cast devils out of Legion!”

She could scarce control
Her eager soul,
Filled with anticipation;
That He would cure
She was assured;
How great her expectation!

And there He stood,
The Son of God;
In faith she reached out pleading;
She touched His cloak,
Her bondage broke,
In an instant stopped her bleeding.

“Who touched” He asked—
She was unmasked—
Made public declaration;
Her faith—the cure—
Had made her pure;
“Go in peace”—His salutation.

Be of good cheer
For Christ is near,
Our Saviour and Physician;
Reach out in faith
And contemplate—
His touch is our transition.

How exquisite you write! I'm so in awe. This is just wonderful. The 'touch' above all touches and you gave it new life. Splendid!

You wrapped the topic beautifully around your words of rhyme. Excellent flow and of course, the message of faith is driven home with this one.

How I love this story! It was told beautifully in your poem. Great rhyme and perfect rhythm. Your last stanza brought it up to today. His touch is still powerful and His invitation still stands. lovely.
