Let me not escape this reverie

I see before me.

Keep the darkness of midnight from stealing

this precious scene away from my weary mind.

I am happy here.

Your face shines like the sun

at this banquet for billions,

each one recognized By the other.

Your righteousness reigns here

and the only tears that sneak into my eyes

and softly wet my face

are ones of unspeakable joy.

I can touch You here.

Here Your words become reality

and I can relax

and fall back into the vastness

that is You.

Someday it will last forever.

But alas, my eyes have opened

sunlight streams into my window,

and another day surrounded

By sin and death lays before me.
