Pietá- A Mother’s Lament

Sorrowful mother at the foot of the cross,

waiting to hold her son

as she did long ago in the stable,

Gently she cradles his broken body,

cleansing his bloody face with her tears

her heart pierced with the sword of grief,

He suffered for the sins of man

her sorrow so great

her anguish our pain,

His unfinished life,

Did he die in vain?
