Made whole

To touch his garment and end the suffering
Hearing words of kind welcome, a healing
Both within and without, not to be ashamed,
Unclean and separate from the community
To be included by a touch, a statement of faith
Being made whole is a risk in the journey, 
An unexpected detour, reaching out beyond
Yourself to another, trusting that words of welcome
Will greet your bold act if daring, your faith
Made you whole, go in the peace of knowing
