I prayed for the sun so I could bathe in its light
Yet the pouring rain made me wait for the night
And when the stars didn't come, I noticed what had gone (by)
A whole day of looking at others and myself
A day of surrender and laughter and smells
And, yes, the sun wasn't here today
As I had wanted, hoped and prayed
(But what have I gained!)
The light of lingering smiles,
The glow of unworried faces
The brightness of friendship
And much smaller spaces
Between me and everlasting love.
