Who Touched Me?

Who Touched Me?

2 mins
93


She waited with her heart pounding through her mouth

Amid a sea of human beings chanting with hope

“If only the Healer’s hand touches me,” cried a blind man

Her humble wish was utterly different and plain


      She was confident that her anguish would vanish

      If only she touched the hem of the Healer’s robe once

      Nevertheless, her conscience continued to eat her heart

      For her success would render the Holy Man unclean


Twelve long years have gone by since her ailment started

That drained her body of blood and mind of spirits

The law took its course to see her ostracized

And made life to the lonely all the more miserable


      She saw the Healer sailing on the human sea not far away

      Her heart thudded faster than ever as she knelt down

      For she was not worthy of confronting the most Holy One

      She believed a touch of His cloak would redeem her


The crowd chanted in excitement pronouncing His advancement

Men making way for Him shoved the human wall on both sides

She sustained her position on the ground to accomplish her mission

Through moving and shaking human feet she saw his garment shining


      She stretched her hand secretly to ensure it did not miss the target

      As the flowing crowd went haphazard for a while she missed him

      She was about to faint on the ground along with her dying dream

      It was then she realized a divine force taking control of her


She charged through the crowd like a doe chased by a hungry tiger

The deadly bodily ailment that had been taking life out of her

Suddenly conceded defeat as she felt life radiating from the feet

Upon which the hem of the milky white robe brushed back and forth


      Her fingers shivered as though magnetized by the waving garment

      Unmindful of the moving crowd that stepped on her back

      She took hold of the hem of the garment with her fingers

      Her action made His feet stop for a moment before she receded


The Divine Healer found a single soul among the sea longing for His touch

Rightfully He healed her ailment and vouchsafed eternal life
