a birthday poem





Understanding Hands


her hands, His hands... touch
her hands, His hands... soothe
her hands, His hands... heal

touching, soothing, healing... hands

one by one... touch is applied
one by one... soothing is felt
one by one... healing is had

they sought Him then
she seeks now
to put her hands to the task
of healing those
who seek
to be soothed
by her touch
applied in the way
that those who are touched
may feel
not only her hands
but His
healing... their... hearts

~Keith Crofts
