As I Lay

by Megan Hodges

As I layJohn, Magee, Dante

upon the dark,

I wonder deep within the Lord

I weep with sorrow and pain

I blink my eyes and see the rain.

I am whole again.

I feel the cleansing of my soul and body.

I hear birds singing their song

as I lay

I sing God’s praises

as I lay

I feel God’s love.

I can see the work of God’s good deeds and followers

as I lay

I know that God is good.
