Each day of my life,
I seek out the light of your presence,
To help guide my actions and words.
Each night of my life,
I look back at how I have spent my precious day.
Did I allow that still, small voice to guide my way?
Here I am poised on the brink of your holy presence.
Watching the sunset, which will define that moment,
When once again I focus on atonement.
Is it possible to be At One with you?
Can I leave behind earthly sensations,
All the thoughts of my heart streaming to you.
Tomorrow as I once again watch the sun set,
Hear the ancient sounds of the Shofar signal an end.
I pray I feel your presence in and around me.
Accept my atonement, accept my prayers.
Allow me to feel you in my body, soul, and mind.
Allow me to be At One with you, at peace with myself.
