Prayer for a Lie-Abed

I am here to pray long hours after the Sun has risen.
While the day began, I was still asleep, still walking in the land of dreams.
Know this, bright Sun, that though I slept, you were still in my heart.
Now, when I am finally awake, I take up my daily responsibilities.
First, though, I will stand here and drink in your warmth
and drink in all the light you give so freely
to arm myself for the day's struggles.
