MAGDALENE © Freda Leask

 

A rose is here before me with its beauty and  its  thorns  

Dying in the cold 

You were my beloved and I was yours

But where are you now?

I took the perfume and I poured it on your feet

Dried it with my hair

They all turned away but I didn't really care

You loved more than anyone could love

But where are you now?

The fragrance has faded

Where are you now?

Where have you gone?

I took the perfume and I poured it on your feet

For I know God is in your blood

Red as crimson, whiter than the snow 

You loved more than anyone could love

But where are you now?

The fragrance has faded

Where are you now?

Where have you gone?

A rose is here before me with its beauty and its thorns

Standing in the rain

Red as crimson, whiter than the snow

You rise, you live again
