I squint my eyes, I shield you away,
Mighty rising sun, unpredictable new day.
Today I shield you away, I try to block you,
For today you bring troubling uncertainty.
Today, O unwitting day, you bring fear
Of a sacred miracle gone, vanished into speculation.
Today I shield my eyes from you
For today you bring sorrow and loss.
Today, O innocent and bright day, you bring me death,
Of a friend, of a mother, and a spirit that might have been.
....such a profound mystery to contemplate..
Golden warm sun, I turn away and lower my eyes,
Through no fault of your own, you bring tears to these piercing eyes.
Today, with radiant warmth, you brought unthinkable chances,
Of things I refuse to face, and refuse to consider.
....Dear God, let this be a foolish thought and nothing more..
