In the waning hours before the sunrise
when soft light wisps through curtained window panes
and before the sounds of busy lives begin again
I renew my conversation with my God.
In blankets wrapped and pillow propped
before these feet place themselves into gravity
and as my eyes have yet to batten a lash in focus
I find again my deep connection with my God.
And in my counting of as many breaths
these lungs are filled with countless blessings
all my hopes and needs begin and end
with these early morning times of confessions.
So, dear Lord before I begin
and the world with all of its chaos ensues
allow me one more moment here with You
let me linger but for another and then…
come with me into the fray.
