He Touched Me

  I Sat Alone in My Despair,
 All Reason for Living Gone,
 When a Stranger Sat Beside Me,
 with a Beard and Hair Too Long.
 
 I Was Soon Absorbed in Misery Again,
 Not Knowing That I Cried.
 The Tears Dripped off My Chin
 and I Wished  I Could Have Died.
 
 His Voice Was Kind and Gentle,
 So I Felt No Need to Flee.
 He Asked Me What Was Wrong,
 to Share May Set Me Free.
 
 I Said, "Walk a Mile in My Shoes
 and Feel this Unbearable Pain.
 Face All the Problems I  Have,
 and Feel the Weight of My Shame."
 
 He Said My Troubles Would Go Away
 as the Wind Blows Away the Sands,
 Then a Wondrous Joy Swept Through Me,
 as He Touched Me with Nail Scarred Hands.

    Connie, I can't find the direction to go with my praise for this beautifully written entry. It's paradoxical, but wonderfully humbling seems to fit. I treasure your sentiment in this one..... and the last line dropped me to my knees..... Love you so much.... Jake
