Beatrice

Ah! The soothing
of that whispered name-
inaudible, nearly...
yet shrouded in familiarity-
fanning the child-heart.

Yes, the wooing
of that angelic flame-
deliver us, swiftly
from this the darkest night
swaddled in your crimson cloth.

Reminds me of Dante's Beatrice. Sometimes a name bears with it a person's partial essence. The hopefulness in it is endearing.
