A poem about the experience of the awareness of a healing energy.

Real but mysterious


Your hand rests upon me

Gentle, soft to touch

Warm and comforting

I appreciate so much

Helping me to cope

With pain, however bad

When you are beside me

It would be churlish to be sad


But then, the warmth changes

The hand, in the same place

Has a cooling energy

Yet I look at the same face

Where does this come from?

Who sends this power to me?

As now the pain eases


Nothing different do I see


To you has been given

A gift of healing, rare

One to help me to progress

Along this path we share

Given by the spirit

When she had to leave


‘He will now be able,

Your pain to relieve


When I have walked, yet again

 Through a vale of tears

Tried to conquer all the pain

And many troubled fears

Then, an inner ability awakens

And within my mind

My verses start to develop

As if recompense to find


Why have I been given

Access to such power?

Yet am made to suffer pain

During many a long dark hour?

As the future becomes the present

The answer will surely show

On some appointed day

The whole truth I shall know

I, too, have felt the power of the healing touch. Unfortunately, my pain returns as soon as the healing touch leaves and I am faced once again with the slings and arrows to which my tortured body is heir to.

The gift of Healing is wonderful, and helps so many...The questions you ask will be answered one day I'm sure...but for now all we can do is to get through life the best way we can, and pass on the message of what can be available to us all...An interesting questioning piece...
Best wishes, Diana...
