When my tears blend with Jesus’ blood

Jesus always had a long lasting influence

In my heart.

Hearing of his crucifixion,

I rushed to the place where Jesus stood still.

The boundless blue sky cried

Tears of sadness and lamentation

Without any consolation.

The scions of silence stretched far

Embracing the horizon which was restless

And wanted to flow towards Jesus’ feet.

His hands were bleeding

And the crown of thorns hurting.

‘Lord! Let me remove the thorny crown

And replace it with a golden one

Studded with stones precious.

Allow me to remove those nails,

I implore to you.’

I stood helpless, wiped Jesus’ feet

With my big handkerchief

And placing my head on his feet,

I cried my tiny heart out.

The hard hitting truth is that

Very few understand the passion of Christ,

The fruitfulness of his mission.

With emotions stripped bare,

I looked up at Jesus and he smiled

As if nothing had happened.

He had forgiven the wrongdoers,

For he believed that they knew not what they were doing.

I said to him, loud and bold,

‘Jesus, you are eternal,

You will be alive in all men’s hearts

And we will walk on the path

You have paved for us.

This is our promise.

And while I said those words,

Jesus’ blood blend with my tears.
