AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

O Mary, your bitter tears
my heart do pierce
Our Mother is crying
Her Son is dying
to save us humanity
from complete insanity.
At the foot of the Cross
for words I feel at a loss
our sins are causing You distress
I'm begging You for forgiveness
I offer You my fears and mishap
crawling on Your Mother's lap
O my Jesus, I need You, I need You
satan plans coup after coup
to destroy me, hoping I'd revolt
he scares me like a thunderbolt
but while walking in Your footstep
on satan's knuckles I will rap
enough, enough, I do tell him
the cup is stored unto the brim.
Kneeling at His Cross's foot
Jesus tells me to stay put
"Let My Graces thee overflow
My Cross gave satan the final blow"
I love you so much My child
and while dying He even smiled.
Thank You, Mary for this gift,
and by this my soul did lift.

I really enjoy reading this poem Rita. Easter is so very close and it's a time of joy to know Christ arose from the dead and lives to give us life and hope and eternity. It' s awesome to think of the sacrifice He made and the suffering for us but how wonderful to think of his triumph over the grave, and the life He life He gives us through His resurrection. Be blessed in Him
God bless you, Shirley
