Ode to Mary

March 7, 2012

I was watching my two-year-old in his bed
He'll be three next week
He was singing The Farmer in the Dell
until he fell asleep

I found my thoughts turning to you,
watching the child Jesus where He lay
and recalling Simeon's prophetic words
about your heart being pierced one day

How could you bear it?
Did you know His days were numbered?
And great suffering before they were through?
The only thing greater than your love for Jesus
was God's love for you
