A Healthcare Poem
when touch and care
are replaced with categories
of things named and unnamed
to separate and create fear.
How do we heal
when love is not covered
and no test can touch
and if it did, the surprise would be
too great to bear.
We are crying in silence or aloud
‘Hold me, comfort me
so I can do for you.’
Don’t be detached and don’t observe.
You are in my life, we are each other
and healing is love.
Just listen, just care.
For we are here
to guide our way home.
