before the dawn — Annette Rochelle Aben

They cover our eyes

Before we see the candles

On the birthday cake

The surprise has been building

For that one moment of joy

Like when we were born

We were in the dark for months

Waiting to come out

Perhaps all good things are born

From the dark into the light
