Easter Morn

While sitting in mass this Easter morn
My heart was weary--- my soul shorn

As our priest stood before us asking where we would be
In God's intimate circle, at the last supper, you see

My mind thought long and hard on that one simple question
For I would be unworthy to be near Him-that is my mention

In this picture in my mind I would be kneeling at His feet
For sins I have committed---no longer whole or complete

What would I say to Jesus--"O' My Lord please forgive me of my sins
Help me to be a better person---from the outside to the within

Guide me on a path to reach the Gates of Paradise
You can teach me -- because You alone are so wise

Tell me what more can I do to achieve more of your "Light"
Help me to fight the evil temptations from morning to night

Show me how to forgive not only others...but to forgive myself
Anymore I am not sure how---for I am lost among a hidden shelf

Be merciful O' Lord to me...a human, a woman, a sinner
Walking with You is the only way I am to be a winner

Point me in the right direction of morality, compassion and love
Guide me to teach others of show them how to reach You above 

Thank you Jesus, My Brother, for dying for me--for us all
In Your sacrifice we are freed from the constraints of our human fall."
