Healer.

Healer

Dedicated to all whose compassion serves as a light in this world…

•

Shattered
like a vessel of alabaster
rent for its salve
she is an ointment
poured forth
upon bleeding souls
and wounded flesh
a river of compassion
forged with an oath
fueled by a vision
those hands of clay
guided by light
skillfully molded
with a wisdom
paid with a price.

Tendered
is this touch that
saves and soothes
comforts and mends
strength sustained
by the pulse of
a heart constrained
by its own calling
the candle within
softened by flame
its waxen tributary
a remembrance to
the joys and sorrows
gains and losses
moments treasured
in the care for mankind.

  1. Dear Dr. Phoebe,
    I hope all is well with you. I have read your book at least a dozen times. You have accomplished somehing great.

    I feel so bad, for not doing a better job of keeping in touch. You are a most talented writer.
    Most Sincerely,
    Your Old Friend,
    Richard
