The tomb was empty of all but light
And the sunshine blessed the opening in the roof of the tomb
Like a messenger from a brighter world.
And in the absence of everyone else
Both the living and the dead
Whose endless needs and questions had been oppressing me darkly
With the weight of their centuries of unresolvable agonies
They were suddenly present.
They were there
They has blossomed instantaneously into being
As simple as sunflowers
The Five Words
For the feeding of seven times seventy thousand
And power was in them
And I knew it then
“Love is stronger than death”
Let’s hear it again!
Love Is Stronger Than Death
