A Special Person

 He met her in a special place

of holding

barred and protected from the world

a prisoner of her own ailing


striking to see

deformed from head to toe

Maria, remarkably was always a glee

no matter what, her face a glow


A Rosary of wood hung around her neck

for 18 years she prayed

with the stumps of her hands frayed

simply she could not hold during prayer

so she used her mouth and teeth with care

to pray for others

as visitors would stare

in awe, overcomed...


she bore prayer without neglect

day after day

she had no eyes or ears

or a face for that mattered not

This special child of God


A sufferer of leprosy

you wouldn’t know

but for her specialty

she was beautiful inside and out

in perfect union with God’s destiny


A witness to extreme physical hardship

Maria spoke loudly without speaking

Her life wrote of a living testament

of devotion and caring

powerful prayers

an example of selflessness


What impact have you?

in a passing shining moment?

why not grab today and stay

to become special to someone

in times that matter

in the eyes of a special person


to make a difference...

She may have deformaties, but she is not disabled - the ones that have them are the ones who stare - who make fun - who do not reach out to those who need help - powerful reminder of God using the weak to confound the wise - the strong - well done.

Welcome back - once again -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Leoprosy is not to be shunned. She was still good in God's eyes and proclaimed her love of him and kept her faith. Much credit should go to her as you wrote her, she is a special person in God's sight.
Reviewed by Barbara Smith 6/10/2008
This is a heart rendering writing but it illustrates the "will" one has regardless of the pains & sufferings she has endured. She kept faith in God and her devotion to God gave her strength & encouragement to live her life daily. I'm sure in God's eyes, she shines like a lovely angel! A great write.
