An Easter Story
Author: Catyrose


Tears streaming down her gentle face
Pain crying out from her darkened eyes
As his became her own
The sky turned as black as coal
Thunder clapping above her head
Lightning cutting across the afternoon sky
Tearing apart his heart of hearts
Gazing into his pleading look one final time
As he cried out to her
She felt his one last breath
Within her woman’s heart
Waves of pain washing over her
More agonizing than those of his first birth
The day he awakened to this world
In a beginning that has no end
When she beheld this miracle of miracles
Loaned to her for such a short time
Torrents of tears fell from the bleakest sky
Falling upon this desecrated ground
Touching the souls of those gathered there
And for those yet to come
Three days then came to pass
And upon the third
The earth began to tremble
Stone turned back in the early morn
An angel in garments as white as snow
Did grace us with his presence
He did arise!
His spirit was set free
Bright light streaming down from the heavens
For all to see
The sun shone upon the earth
Bearing witness to this miracle of miracles
The moment of his rebirth
