Easter

Mary of Magdala
 
Without death there is no life.
Without the cross there can be no resurrection.
Amid the backdrop of strife
Joy comes alive in the present intersection.
 
My Love's not here
He has risen.
They say, "You won't find him out there
His Spirit is still hidden."
 
Inside I can feel him that's where he is.
The message is in me to be bidden.
Love is to die for, yes it is. 
If I LIVE love, joy will never be hidden.
