I sit and wait,
As darkness prepares to descend,
Your light is greater than the approaching night.
May we not forget,
As we go forward toward the shadows,
We do not travel alone,
Should we walk, shuffle, or merely crawl;
We go with you.
You await our arrival with sustenance and warmth.
Remove from us now:
And barriers of today.
May the shimmering rays of dusk,
Settle our souls and prepare our hearts for night.
