Lost gift

I loved it when it was night. I said to myself, "God has gifted this night to me. And he created nights with me in mind." I was full and overflowing with joy.

As it dawned slowly, as I saw light, everything darkened in me. As it got brighter outside, darker it became inside me. My god's gift was slipping away right in front of my eyes.

Stuck between reality and dream, I pressed my face against the pillow.  I think I wept, and then somehow slept.  I woke up when the sun was hot on my face.  Now I only wish I were asleep that one night!
