Shadows of the night, be gone.
Your time well-spent in nourishment,
Nurturing the dreams of light,
As dawn brings hope of new beginnings.
Smiling down upon my face.
Spread your joy across my brow,
Raise your manna to my lips.
Sadness cannot breach your fortress,
Tragic cause must pass you by as
Every creature great and small
Upward turns to meet your stare.
Asking nothing in return.
Not in worship, but our kinship,
Bids me pause to offer praise.
