so it seems you slept with the light on
i awake in the darkness of early morn to see the bright band around your door
glowing like divinity to chase the nightmares away

i do not return to sleep
my prayers for you are too large to let me close my eyes

here now when the morning sun casts my shadow against the wall i await your awakening with the trembling hope that the storms of the night have cleared from your heart and you are ready to smile again
