A Little Angel Once Told me:”Let Me Wrap You in Cotton Wool.”

A little angel once told me:

“Let me wrap you in cotton wool

and keep you there,

so that no pain can ever reach you,

only the pain that must.

This cotton wool doesn’t suffocate or jail

or steal life’s colour.

This cotton wool doesn’t hide the truth

and is never lame or limp.

Still, it’s warm and strong and resilient

to mind you all the time.”
