For Ciera 5/26/81 - 2/17/83

Giraffe awaits your kiss,
My child,
Awake beneath that pile of things.

Who put your years away like toys
Like dolls with sightless eyes?

My love for you still burns the air
And melts
With beads of light in sun - confetti bars,

For we shared times of magic
Real to us
As morning glories growing fields of stars.

Now perfect joy will hold you in embrace
Thou Heaven's child
Until I reach you there.

We'll have firmaments of stars to hang in place
Eternity to share.
