Star of the Sea

 
Star of the Sea (For Molly Allcock)

You have survived the early arrival
And breathed life back to
Those close to you.

You have travelled for nineteen weeks,
Doubling your weight.
Raising expectations.

You are too tired to carry on
And with regret made of
Tubes, Perspex and wires,

You have left us.
