Butterfly Dream

Blue butterfly flying spring meadowButterfly Dream (Dedicated to Elizabeth October 09, 1969 – March 27, 2014)

My daughter and I

Her hand in mine

She led me through a buoyant crowd

Passing the popcorn stand, red stripes

Loudly beckoning to anyone to

Savor this moment

At the bouquet of balloons

I saw you

Mesmerized, I watched as

You flitted up to me

Shining brightly

Awed

To see you

Radiating joy

You smiled and nodded

So glad to

See you healed

You smiled and nodded

Knowingly

Then, I felt the warmth of

My tears streaming down my cheeks

And I awoke

Rejoicing in

Your Freedom
