Saint Bernadette

Bernadette I believe

the story of your vision.

A story true

for me from you

a story right from Heaven.

Bernadette I believe and I'll believe for your protection,

that on the day

you strolled away

you saw the Immaculate Conception.

And on the rock

from where she stood -

with feet embossed in gold,

behold from this Our Lady spoke

of miracles untold.

So many times you did see,

a mockery made of you.

of certain folk from your village Lourdes

the things they said untrue.

Then came a bush that bloomed a rose,

yet baron for many years.

And then the stream

which miraculously healed,

straight from Our Lady's tears.

Although disbelieved you still stood up,

to all whom questioned you.

You stood your ground

which was Heavenly bound,

for what you said was true.

Although you suffered grief and pain

from within the convent home,

with all the lonesome work and strain-

you never were alone.

The hours ticked by -

the minutes even,

and on your death bed laid.

Then came Our Lady

and with her to Heaven,

a miracle price you paid.

For be it known that on this day,

the little girl who strolled away.

was kind and dear

and very quaint.

Dear Bernadette

You are a Saint

Our Lady of Lourdes
