A poem for erev Shabbat, which reflects on the transition from day to night, from the rest of the week to Shabbat – the transitions which occur around us and within us.

You bring on the evening,
You change the light around us,
You change the light within us.
We hear You whisper gently:
“This is the sacred time,
this is the soul change time,
this is the Sabbath, My gift to you.”
