MARY - THE FOLLOWER!

His Love Touched my heart like a butterfly's wings,
All those years ago...
A Man - like no other I had ever know, making my heart sing,
Making me feel aglow.
His Smile was like the sunrise on a snowy mountainside,
HIs Voice was Soft and Low.

Try as I would, I couldn't stay away,
I followed wherever He went!
With a few simple Words He'd Turned my life around,
When He Bid me to repent.
He was A Prince among men,
As far as I was concerned He was Heaven sent!

He Touched so many lives,
With the same Love that He'd Touched mine.
No one who knew Him,
Could doubt His Love Divine...
No thought of what He could take,
But to Give - and Give and Give again - was to Him Sublime!

He was invited to an exclusive house,
As an 'honoured guest' one day...
Yet... common courtesy denied -
Not even water offered to Him to wash the grime away!
Timidly, I crept forward, as my love for Him poured out...
My tears fell on His Head, washing it -
And onto His Feet did stray.

Then, pouring oil lovingly, upon His Head and Feet,
I used my hair to wipe Him dry, as perfume filled the air.
I stood silently, on another day, at the foot of His Cross of wood,
His Mother, Mary, shared my name, she shared with me a love for Him so rare!
I turned to His Tomb, to give my last farewell,
"Mary!"Was all my Master had to say, 
He Lives - and let ME be the first one, The Good News to share!!!
