halal

Papa,

You are the God of the night.
You sit close to the seekers of solace.
And you love, warmly.

-- without filter.

-- without caption.

-- without question.

You never ask why you should love. You just love.
So every heartache awaits the coming of your healing,
So brokenness will only ever glorify you.

You have never been bothered by the darkness.
You kiss the end of day with dusk.
You kiss the end of night with dawn.

Because you are the God of the night,
Even the darkness is not dark to you.
To you, the night is bright like day.

Papa,

Sit close to me in the dark.
Teach me how to count the stars
And to listen to how the earth worships you--

-- without filter.

-- without caption.

-- without question.
