I Prayed Tonight
I prayed tonight.

Now I shall try to tell
You what I did, or saw, or felt.

I know it is impossible to put into words
The feeling that can only be felt, not said.

But I guess I must try
Maybe to boost my own
Self-deceiving superiority;
Maybe because I want others
To catch a glimpse of the beauty
I experienced tonight.

I hope it’s the latter.
Really, you know, I can’t put it into words.
