A Moment

as I sat in the quiet of night
talking to my Creator
asking my asks
wanting my wants
I began to sense a sadness
an overwhelming sadness
that stopped my words

the sadness hovered
not over me
but beside me
not touching
but there nonetheless

for a brief moment I thought
“God is sad
so many wants and asks”
I paused
then continued with my conversation

the sadness remained
just off to the side
as I came to the end
of my nightly tradition
a new thought formed
refusing to leave

I almost didn’t
but then I did
in the quiet darkness of my room
I said
“I love you, God”

the sadness went away.
