touched by your kindness
my walls begin to fall
touched by your love
did i ever need them at all?

touched by your tired
the crumbs begin to crawl
then touched by your rage
i build another wall

touched by another
still afraid to care
touched again by kindness
do i even dare?

touched by some cruelty
never seems to end
touched by the dying
to lose another friend

touched from above
my heart begins to heal
touched by His goodness
i begin to truly feel

touched by His mercy
i feel a guiding hand
touched with new resolve
i doubt still but know i can
