PALMS & CROSSES (Holy Saturday)

 

This week palms, 

Joy and praise

Hearts are lifted 

Voices raised

Next week nails and 

Crowns of thorns

The mother of God 

Herself will mourn

A handful of stragglers 

Waits at the scene

Asking themselves what it is that they’ve seen

Best go home

Assess our losses

One week palms,

Next week crosses

One week palms 

Next week crosses

Mostly life goes on unseen

All I can say is 

Tomorrow will decide 

What yesterday means

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means

Single mom with three small kids

Picnic lunch under the bridge

Cast a line, catch a few fish

Eat spaghetti off a styrofoam dish

Throw your ball, ride your bike

There you go, Just play nice

Look, mom, look! You got a bite

He stole your bait. Story of my life.

One week palms next week crosses

Mostly life goes on unseen

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means

A mother with her children 

on the Fourth of July

Waving sparklers on a 

Cordoned off street

I told you 

Keep your shoes on, 

Don’t blame me

When you wind up with 

Glass in your feet

Birthday parties, 

Wedding gifts

Gotta run to the store

Can you give me a lift

ooh This looks cool

What’s it do?

It catches dreams, 

Ah that isn’t true

How do you know? 

You gotta believe

Alright, ask, 

Ye shall receive

Give me back 

the friends I lost

Yeah that’s right,

 just like I thought

 

One week palms 

Next week crosses

Mostly life goes on 

Unseen

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means

All I can say is tomorrow will decide what yesterday means
