Hem of the Garment

Pain, pain and pain, with never a pause, Could I hear the sound of laughter? Only around me and everywhere, but – Never had I the chance to hear my own Till that day, I heard Him coming! Yelp, yelp and yelp of agony, The ache and affliction through the years Searched and groaned for healing someday Hopes ‘n I shattered - this is destiny I greet, Till that day, I saw the light of hope! Cry, cry and cry, shedding the tears to dry Had I mourned my sorrow out Yet the torment within and out never fade Never could I stop the flowing tears of mine Till that day, my eyes had seen Him Hope, hope and hope, I went through the crowd – Of people crushing Him on every side A few inches away from the healing Stretched forth my hand to receive it – On that day, I touched His garment hem! Faith, faith and faith, filling my heart complete Could I see my future, a happy me With no pain and sorrow, no more tears to shed But happy moments to surround me full On that day, was I healed complete! Fear, fear and fear struck me hard, hearing – “Who art thou touched me? “ From him Though his disciples said, people were – All around Him, He knew He’d healed me, On that day, though I thought it was in secret! Joy, joy and joy, was I overwhelming with Though I stood there afraid in front of Him – And the confused crowd, He embraced me ‘n blessed, I thought I found him first, but never had I realized – Till that day, He had found me, in my mother’s womb! - Sarah Antony
