Before her day began.

Her only precious possession was morning.

The first few seconds upon waking, eyes covered,

feet still in the land of dreaming.

Those few sacred moments of stillness

before the world around surrounded her

reappearing in sound and color

to force her into the daylight

a day when she was to lead

the one expected of her.
