I come to care for you
And I have some precious tools
That have been granted me.
First, I use my eyes
To see you, your physical being
The place where you rest
Taking in the whole environment
And your aura of life.
Next I use my ears
As I listen to the sounds of your environment
And the nuances of your voice.
My entire body listens through my ears
And I sit quietly by your side
Absorbing your words and the deeper meanings
Our beings connecting here and now.
I use my touch
To tell if you are warm or cool
Feeling pulses and anointing your aching body
Energy moves through the universe, to both me and you
Your consciousnesses unit in the touch.
My most important tool
Is always at work
I must remember though, to care for this tool
To return to this tool again and again:
The tool of the heart.
For the heart knows
When and how to give care, love, compassion.
The heart reaches out, radiating its own electromagnetic field
A tool of communication
A tool of presence
A tool of here and now being
The most important tool
For healing the self and other.
