The sun slowly sets to the west,
The fall of night bringing with it a solemn peace.
The world is quiet and sleepy,
And the stars sparkle their praises above.
Thoughts tumbling through my head
As the fan above me whirs on contentedly.
What are these emotions that bounce through my consciousness? 
Remnants of feelings that aren't quite fully formed. 
Falling off of my heart before they can accumulate,
Like rain on a newly washed car.
I try to ignore them,
But new ones pelt me with a persistence that I cannot resist. 
It's as if, for a moment, I cannot decide what I am feeling
Or maybe even forgot how to feel. 
But one sentiment begins to outweigh all the others.
A warmth of overwhelmed-ness overtakes me.
Because the God of the universe loves me
The star-breathing Creator cares about me. 
And suddenly, all those other things just seem so small in comparison.
