before the sun

Before the sun ever gets through those clouds
before the sun ever reaches through my windows
before the sun ever greets the moon goodnight
Before the sun chases away the stars
Before the sun dries up all the rain
Before the sun brings light into dark
and just right before when the sun is about to hatch,
the sun rises before anything else in our eyes
minute by minute
second by second
you wait,
and you wait.
You never run out of patience
because that's the first thing we expect
at the end of the night.
