A Child Will Come

A child will come    to live among you,
to claim you as guardians    in tenderness,
whose name will be    a byword to you:
a name for your hope,    your joy, your faith,
                                                for your caress.

Though flames may dwindle    as, during night-hours,
we contemplate    our final duress,
the more your child    will be welcome to you:
the name that arrived    and, through your lives,
                                                who never left.
