Mary Of Nazareth

Mothers don’t have to say

They only have to look

For the look is always love

Even when they scold

This person is my origin

Where my life began

She nurtured me and fed me

Before I was a man


And letting go

She holds me still in love

She might annoy me sometimes

Watching from above

We have to leave our Nazareths

Break away from home

Only to come back again

This time on our own


Mary in the Gospel

Is presence more than words

Do whatever he tells you her advice

And standing by the cross

Faithful to the end

Given to us as Christ’s last gift

A mother and a friend

Ave Maria
