Prayer to Dawn

It matters not that the sun shines on those around me,
or even if it's highest on the brightest day of the year,
I am still in darkness, my soul open and aching.
I cry for the light, the truest light,
I cry for it to fill the hole within.
Dawn, open your gates in me, and bring the dawn to my soul,
unlock the gates of my heart,
and create a path where people might walk through open doors.
