God Woke Me Up

Before I fall asleep at night, I pray to God
to open my eyes to witness the birth
of the new day, I don’t know at what point
I close my eyes, and my body retires,
but after a while, I am awake again. Death could’ve
dragged me away from this world yet, God wakes
me up to another day of life, and I am grateful;
I did not wake myself up this morning.
