Star Child - Poem by Tom Courtney

Star child
so far away alone
standing on the edge of the universe
You can't be reached
You can't be played
You can’t be preached
You've traveled so far
You are the only one
You think

The earth lies in wait
your virgin touch
your imagination and faith to burst forth
Soon you will emerge
from the cocoon of your pain
Alone inside, you will find the way
if you can
And you can
only if you will

My prayer is not for you
though I love you
My prayer is for
the idea of you
who you alone were meant to be

You are one of us forever
Come, come near
One of the holy, ever dear
You are the lost unknown and unimagined
as of yet
Find peace
in a still moment passing

And the universe will dare you
though it has scared you
in your secret/ secret now untied
Tell your story star child
you will not happen again

And I love you as you never know
and I pray for you
to pray for me once too
For I was once
star child
