(Art Poem) Comforter of the Afflicted by Yvonne M. Lucia

Comforter of the Afflicted

COMFORTER OF THE AFFLICTED

 

O Comforter of the Afflicted,

hide me in the shelter

of your wings.

See me with the tender sight

of your many-eyed vision.

Caress my wounds

with your soft healing touch.

Open me to the paradox

that the crucible of sorrow

may bear unseen gifts.

As your merciful care

embraces and assists me,

may I be a sacrament of presence

to all whose sufferings

touch my heart.
