Shine On Luna Bliss


This is a truly beautiful poem, written by Clint Boon from Inspiral Carpets after his precious daughter, Luna Bliss sadly died at only 34 days old. Clint read this poem at Luna's funeral and has given us his permission to share it with you...


Shine On Luna Bliss

Turn left at the butterflies
Pass the rabbit as you go
Where a multitude of colours
Will embrace you like a rainbow

A world of faith, a world of hope
A world of colours never seen
A world of joy, a world of Love
And eternal moonlight dreams

Shine On Luna Bliss

As I fell into your Universe eyes
And you into mine
In your final moments here
I desired only one thing

To come with you
And be by your side
For all time
As my whispers warmed your head
And my tears washed your face
I fought so hard to keep you here
And you fought hard to stay

Shine On Luna Bliss

I don't know what's out there
My little one
But I do know this
It'll be a far better place
For having you there
As this place you leave today
Is even more wonderful
For having had you here
Just for these few short moments
Which were so, so brief
Like a single beat of a butterfly's wing


Shine On Luna Bliss

To me
For all time
You will remain
A symbol for all that is pure
All that is good
And all that is loved
Untouched
Your colours will remain
Embracing this world
For our forever

So take your tiny hand now
From mine
And go gently, sweet thing
Turn left at the butterflies
Pass the rabbit as you go
Where a multitude of colours
Will embrace you like a rainbow

A world of faith, a world of hope
A world of colours never seen
A world of joy, a world of Love
And eternal moonlight dreams

And I'll be right there with you
My precious child
I'll be with you...
In a single beat of a butterfly's wing

Shine On Luna Bliss

All my love forever. Your Dad.
