Lent 7

The middle of the night always comes:

I am afraid of the dark

Afraid of the unknown at 2 in the morning

Wide-eyed in case the uncontrollable, unthinkable happens

So I stay awake

Stay distracted

Determined not to be caught off guard by the night

I need you, Lord Jesus,

For this simple act of sleeping
