Mary of Magdala's Easter Prayer


I never suspected
Resurrection
         and to be so painful
          to leave me weeping
With Joy
to have met you, alive and smiling, outside an empty tomb
With regret
not because I've lost you
       but because I've lost you in how I had you -
in understandable, touchable, kissable, clingable humanity
cling to what we had, our past.

But I know that......if I cling
you cannot ascend and
I will be left clinging to your former self
......unable to receive your present spirit.
