When does the night end?

When does the night end?

It does not end at dawn.
It does not end when the first streaks of sunlight show you the palms on the coconut trees, swaying gently in the breeze.
It does not end when the first streaks of sunshine across the sky glint off the snow glistening on the mountain tops.

The night ends when two travelers from the farthest corners of our land meet together and embrace. When they realize that they sleep under the same sky, see the same stars, and dream the same dreams.

That is when the night ends and the dawn begins.
