You heard me tell you,        
'I am going away and I will come back to you.'          
If you loved me, you would rejoice.

A memory
                                                a story told
passed on
                                                from mouth to mouth
then written down
                                                then printed
a 2,000 year old best seller
                                                still hot on the press
millions of copies
                                                in almost every language

                                s  t  s

a memory
                                                a strange woman
a story told
                                                a mysterious child
passed on
                                                she could not understand
                                                but tried to
from mouth to mouth
                                                lived and was killed
then written down
                                                for claiming to be God
then printed
                                                the story has it
a 2,000 year old best seller
                                                he reappeared to his friends
                                                after his death
still hot on the press
                                                cooked them fish
millions of copies
                                                and much to their chagrin
                                                said he’d leave them
in almost every language
                                                but at some time future time

                                                would come back again
