In my midnight doze I think of
how I shall at dawn open my eyes
and see you.
Awake in the white light of day
I tell myself how I may joyously
bring the day’s work to you.
I think of you while at work–
and tell myself that at day’s end
I shall sit at your side.
And in the evening, I sit in
your sea of infinite rest, knowing
that my tired soul is home.
