Abandonment


Mary broke her stone jar

And poured out her most precious possession

In an act of abandoned generosity

Prompted by love.


The Father broke a stone tomb

And poured forth His most precious One

In an act of abandoned generosity

Prompted by love.


And like the disciples in Bethany

We sit and watch and discuss

And complain of the waste.


Do not abandon us, oh Father,

But teach us to abandon ourselves,

To love.
