Touch - Poem

By BushMaid


 The depth of this ache, the pain in my soul;
A suffering wound; a dark bleeding hole.

Torturous anguish, pain swells in my heart;
An agony deep that tears me apart.

The pain I can see; I feel it inside -
Gut-wrenching longing I try hard to hide.

A dark void so deep, it blackens the night -
I yearn for the dawn of God's freeing Light.

I know I've a gift He's given to me;
To reach out and show them - help them to see.

My heart skips a beat, this feeling so strong;
This calling inside - how could it be wrong?

But for this distance, I'd jump up and go:
To act out His Will: for sure, then, I'd know.

For deep in my soul, believing so much -
I know things could change, if I only could touch...

And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; 
they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

Mark 16:17-18
