Butterfly Poem

Thank you Paula for sending me this beautiful poem, I will cherish it forever.

You were safe and warm
inside my womb
transforming and growing
just like a cocoon

We did anxiously await
for the day to arrive
Not knowing your fate
and that we'd be saying goodbye

God had a plan
It was different from ours
You take you to heaven
Way up past the stars

Like the butterfly emerges
from it's cocoon
Like the bud of a rose
getting ready to bloom

Your spirit is set free
spread your wings and take flight
He's waiting for you
go into the light

I'll cry for a while
maybe for years
Until I hold you in heaven
Where there are no more tears.

It is a beautiful poem but you know what I thought was more beautiful? The picture of Sami that you shared. She's breathtaking.
