You Were Always Here With me

Ann Free Spirit

You were always here with me
at night when over the bed I lay
as I thought of you on the cross
I asked you to help me to bear my pain
because at times I could not
hold back my tears of fear
because I did not know
when the nuns would stop

You were always here with me
As you have so many times
taken me by my hands
and You have held them for a while
so now dear Jesus
if You can hold them again for me
for I need You beside and within me
because I am so hurt
and I had left you for a while

You were always here with me
for You had never left me
and I know you are
right here with me
as I have been through these many years
going back and forth to You
Dear Jesus, I know you have
alway cared

You were always here with me
so please take the pain away from me
as I want to heal
and if I should fall again
please show me a way back to you
and cradle me in your arms once more
for you are my light and my way
my strength to carry on
as I need you near me
for ever more

You looked after me when I was a child

and I am still that little girl who has been turned away from your faith and I do know deep down that you  have not let me go.

Please help me with my cross

as I don't think I can go on much longer,

it brings tears to my heart to see how much you

have done for me over the years. You are always

in the background waiting for me to fall,

to pick me up again.


Dear Mother Mary, 

how good, Pure

and truly Holy you are

and please give my son a kiss from me

and rest his head on your lap. I do miss him so,

just like I miss you and Jesus. I know you are

with me and  NO,   I will not forget how you gave

me my strength to live through my childhood.


I will be with you again this year on Good Friday at three

when your son died 2004 years ago

and Mary if you do not mind,

I will be by myself.

Please forgive me

for my slowness in coming forward

as it was with you and Jesus

I have had the strength

to do what I am doing today.


How blind I have been all these years,

not to see your pain as you carried your cross

and died for my sins.

Please forgive me Dear Jesus,

because I have caused you so much pain

and I see how these men nailed you to the cross

had no mercy for you

and how your Mother Mary

must have felt

as she saw you carry your own cross of death up that hill,

how she saw you fall down

and she could not help you.


I went to see you today

and I waked with you a little way,

but I did not go to the top of the hill with you

as the pain was too much for me to bear,  

I felt so weak

and like a weasel

 I left you again to carry your cross alone.


When will I be strong again Dear Jesus?

Please help me to bear my cross

of shame with you,

because I do so want to walk beside you

all the way with your Mother Mary

beside me as well.


I do love you Jesus and Mary

and I will be with you both on Good Friday,

but please help me on my way with you,

as I do fall down 

and go the wrong way some  times. 

I am not worthy enough for even been with you.

So please hear my voice

and look down on me

and hold my hand to your heart,

Let me feel your love Dear Jesus

and give me faith in you,

which I so long for.


Thank you, Dear Jesus and Mary for all your love

and for helping me.

My Lord Jesus

I will come as I am

As you know me so well

I have never lost my love

for you

And as You now take my hand

To you loving heart

My Lord

I will come as I am.
