For Edward in response to his poem ‘Please do not hurt me’.
O’ child there’s a cluster of stars that will guide your way
Long after the cruel machinations of this world has gone
Where the mind of love will protect you, through the pain of loss
Don’t be afraid, feel this hand of trust, this implicit knowing
Know there is a river of time, of life for those who follow,
this same cluster of stars I see in you.
