Loving Touch of the Hand

So much in the touch
the loving touch of the hand
resting briefly upon us
transferring affection
the depth of caring
only touch can achieve

Going into the world
being present with our neighbors
offering more than mere words
in the work of our savior
Going further
reaching out to them
offering our very selves to them
in the loving touch of our hands
