Written January, 2012: Poem about Waiting on the Lord....'Hours Before Dawn'

Hours Before Dawn
Peter Menkin
January, 2012

This morning in hours
before dawn at 3 a.m.
I wait like watchman
for first light
to know you, Lord, whom
I wish to see this day.

May my creation, its preservation,
and its work be for you, Lord,
an act of gratitude and thanks
for this life.
