After

Mary,
did you sleep . . .
could you eat?
After.

After
betrayal
arrest
desertion
denial.

Did you wander in a daze,
heart and spirit aching,
events a blurry haze?

After
trial
humiliation
torture
crucifixion.

Did you shed hot tears,
rage in despair,
struggle with deep fears?

After
he thirsted
he forgave
he commended his spirit to God
it was finished.

Did you sleep . . .
could you eat?
After.
