Begins the Day

“Begins the Day, a poem by Gregg Hake

Off to bed, to dream, tonight:
Stretch and yawn, turn off the light.
Let the day now come to rest,
Feel the lightness in my chest-
For soon the day is done.

Forgive the world, address my fears;
The sooty day soon disappears.
The new beginning now is void,
My sorrows gone, not overjoyed-
For soon the day is done.

So the night begins the day,
My heart and mind now wait and pray.
