A poem on Good Friday

A poem for Easter —

I Believe

I was not there when Mary cried.

I was not there when Peter denied.

I was not there when thorns were a crown.

I was not there when He fell down.

I was not there when they nailed Him to the board.

I was not there when they crucified my Lord.

Crucify Him! Crucify Him! The people said.

Crucify Him! Crucify Him! They killed Him.

He’s dead.

Oh Jesus, my brother, God’s only son.

What a hideous crime the soldiers have done.

The Earth turned dark. It would tremble and quake.

Mary held her son. She felt her heart break.

The third day came with a big surprise.

The stone was moved. Jesus did rise.

He went to Heaven to open the gate.

To teach us to love and never hate.

I was not there but still I grieve.

I was not there but I believe.
