A Star to Guide Her (1999)

It’s dark tonight, inside and out;
and I’m cold, scared;
terrified for her life.
What dreams might haunt her
in her sleep,
in that dark place
that is not life, nor death?
How tentative
a bond to life we share,
how fragile.
Has she not paid enough?
Butterfly wings
all that keep her with me
locked
in a darkness greater
than I can understand.

And I’d give
all that I am
for a star
to guide her
home.
