With Grace She Binds ~ Bethany

May a star be-speckled sky
be the road that lights your way, 
as a comet’s tail protects you 
and surrounds you everyday

may the moons of ages past 
cast a brilliance on your life
may motherearth hold the secrets
as your footsteps land on strife

I watched as you breached the void
between the veils I’ve yet to lift,
I first held your hand in friendship
and my heart was thrown adrift

So, in love with your first breath 
that I had nothing left to fear, 
see the one thing I always protect
is something I now hold dear

you’re the strength that god sent down
to help me on my way, 
my little smiling devil 
and to thank the heavens I do pray

now my child of grace and love 
shadows the face of the world 
she is the reason I’m leaving
my paper-heart and love unfurled

this prayer and spirit is binding 
to hold you on your way,
I love you my darling daughter
and will, forever and a day 

for my Gorgeous Daughter on her birthday 09.07.2010
