A CUT ABOVE THE REST – Hector Boon raises money for charity

Many of you will be aware that Clint Boon’s baby daughter Luna Bliss died on the 20th April 2012 – she was just 34 days old. Her funeral was held on the 3rd May 2012 during which Clint read a poem he had written to his daughter.

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.

Clint’s 5 year old son son Hector had never had his hair cut – whilst Luna was being cared for at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester he agreed to have his long brown locks cut for charity. The aim being to raise enough money to buy some special nursing chairs which offer the vital contact between parents and their preterm infants. The technique known as’ Kangaroo Care’ provides skin-to-skin contact between parent and baby which in turn provides physiological and psychological warmth and bonding.

Despite Luna losing her battle, Hector is still keen for everyone to give generously to his chosen charity – You can do that at Just Giving – Hector

In addition LTW Assoc Editor Phil Newall is auctioning via eBay his copy of The Inspiral Carpets Record Store Day 2012 7″ – all proceeds will go to Hectors charity.

Please give generously.
