As True as God

A lamb's first steps by Peter Shanks from Lithgow, Australia Wikipedia

As True as God

I wish you peace
As true as God;
Joy to match
A young child's giggles
Of magical delight;
Friendship that endures past
Endings in time like
Ageless siblings at play
Or the vision of how innocence was;
You live in my memory
Until I see you again
And then
All of heaven 
Will be a luminous joy!
I knew you as
A gentle boy
Seeking truth;
I hold you
As one would hold
A star.
