Anointed

I love to visit this story every year,
Whether it is Mary, or the unknown
Woman who comes and anoints
Jesus, the smell off the perfume fills
The room, do does the offense at such
An expensive waste, and extravagance
Lushly anointing the feet of Jesus
I think the things which pulls my
Mind so to this story is the act of love
This wonderful act of love poured out
Before all thru pain and suffering
Before Christ's body is broken
Before the crowds turn and shout
"Crucify!" before it all ends one
Person, with one small act of love
Could it have sustained through all
