As the night sky first turns pale.
Watch each star fade in heavenly flood
Watch light soak dawn like rain in the mud.
As the sun has not yet struck your world
Feel its pressure looming near
Taking all the time it should
Completely patience, no rush of fear.
To the silence just before the daybreak
Let it fill your mind and cleanse your soul
Let it heal your loss and heartache
Make fire from your inner coal.
At the color of the heavens
At this moment that seems so bleak
Love the grasp of present moment
Forget all you want and seek.
When that golden line first borders the Earth
Storing in your heart and mind
The memory lost in the next one’s birth.
