I don't own Jesus Christ Superstar. This poem is the reflection between Jesus (J) and Mary Madgeline (M) during earlier and current times


((J))

You were always there for me

Through the laughter and the tears

Even when I felt like I was alone

Your love helped calm my fears

In the darkness when I was alone

And trembling in the night

You whispered to me "I AM RIGHT HERE"

And into the darkness you brought light

((M))

Alone in the nightmare

I will not cry

I will get where I am going

I can make it as long as I try

((J))

Looking into your eyes I see

What I saw years ago

Does anything but love mater

I have to answer no

In the darkness when I was alone

And trembling in the night

You whispered to me "I AM RIGHT HERE"

And into the darkness you brought the light

((M))

You were always there for me

The only one who really cared at all

You know that I was falling

And you would never let me fall

The words You had to speak that day

Still echo in my soul

I remember how you were trembling

And it seemed to be very cold

((J))

What do you do

When your heart will not say

The words you know they must

Do you go back along the way

((M))

In the darkness I am trembling

But I feel you here

Gently you take my hand

And whisper, "I am near"

The words I heard you whisper

Gets me through another night

Now I know this much

I am going to be alright

I put aside where I'm at right now

And look to a brighter day

Your words helped me see

That it isn't far away

((J))

I miss you so much

I hear you whisper to me

I echo the sentiments back to you

Losing you forever isn't an option you see

I return to that night

Given it's hard to do

But I will relive it all again

So I can be with you

((M))

How do you do it, my friend asked me

"Do what," I asked

"Stay so happy when you're struggling," he replied

"I mean I immediately came unmasked"

"First off all I'm not alone

"There will come a brighter day

"Being upset isn't going to

"This situation change"

In the darkness

You took my hand

And led me into

Your perfect land

((J and M))

In my darkness

When I was alone

Your love was a light

That led me home
