Touch Me

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Touch Me . . .

If I am your child... Please touch me.
Persist; find ways to meet my needs.
Your goodnight hug helps sweeten my dreams.
Your daytime touching tells me how you really feel.

If I am your teenager... Please touch me.
Don't think because I'm almost grown,
I don't need to know that you still care.
I need your loving arms; I need a tender voice.

If I am your friend... Please touch me.
Nothing lets me know you care like a warm embrace.
A healing touch when I'm depressed assures me I am loved,
And reassures me that I'm not alone.
Yours may be the only comforting touch I get.

If I am your life's partner... Please touch me.
You may think that your passion is enough,
But only your arms hold back my fears.
I need your tender reassuring touch, To remind me
I am loved just because I am me.

If I am your grown-up child... Please touch me.
Though I may have a family my own to hold,
I still need Mommy's and Daddy's arms when I hurt.
As a parent the view is different; I appreciate you more.

If I am your aging parent... Please touch me.
Hold my hand, sit close to me, give me strength;
And warm my tired body with your nearness.
Although my skin is worn and wrinkled, It loves to be stroked

Don't be afraid.

Please Touch Me!

It is proven that a single touch can heal so much. Today I want to encourage you to more then reach out those you love - reach out and touch someone you dont know. Touch someone with a gentle caress of the hand; that feelng extends so much more then just a touch.

Lord thank you today for the gift of touching.

    Your poe says so eloquently a truth. Neglect s considered to be worse fo children that abuse. Part of that is the lack of touch.
Thank you so much.

    Lovely post! I had this thought this morning at church. Saw a dear lady who lost her husband earlier this year, and my heart said, go hug her, she needs touch.
