At The Tomb

Stone rolled away

Empty cave

They have taken Him!

 

Heart racing

Arms trembling

I have to tell the others 


Returning to the tomb

I collapse

All I can do is let the tears fall

 

How could they desecrate his body?

They took everything, and now this?


Rabboni, Rabboni

It wasn’t supposed to be this way!

You were my hope! How can that hope be gone?

Please, please… I want to continue to hope! 


My face is wet from weeping

My hands rough from the dirt beneath me

I turn to face the space where he once lay


Did I hear someone from within?

Slowly I rise and approach

Then light – beings of light sit upon the place where his body was…

“Dear woman, why are you crying?” 


Because they have taken away my Lord and I don’t know where they have put him,

I reply… but, this can’t be real.

I turn to leave, thinking I must be delusional.

And out of the corner of my eye, the gardener startles me.

I keep my head down,

I just can’t handle any conversation right now.

I begin to walk away

 

Then his voice, so gentle, calls to me

“Dear woman, why are you crying?  Who are you looking for?” 


Wait – maybe he knows something, maybe he moved Him?

Sir, if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him and I will go and get him.

Suddenly he stepped closer and I looked up, 

“Mary!”

 

Rabboni!

It was Yeshua, my teacher, my redeemer, my friend.

I could not contain my relief and elation!

I hugged him as tightly as I could,

I had to be sure He was really there!

 

“Don’t cling to me,” Yeshua said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father.

But go find my brothers and tell them,

‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father,

to my God and your God.’”

 

So I went

To the others

To remind them of hope

 

Heart racing

Arms trembling

“I have seen the Lord!”
