A butterfly hovers closely

A butterfly hovers closely
A butterfly hovers closely And then quickly moves away, Swiftly going where so ever Her heart may freely say. A butterfly lowers and rises With the winds’ gusty breath, As if coupled within a dance Of a loving tenderness. The butterfly only knows How it feels to have wings, To kiss the petals of flowers In such elegant flutterings. To have but one moment Of such an exquisite flight, Would be like a dream Where all seems so right. Author Unknown

With Hope by Steven Curtis Chapman

This song really helped me get through a lot of moments of grief when my mom passed away in January 2008. I have often shared this song with others. I noticed it wasn’t on You Tube with lyrics and photos, so I made it myself to share with the world. This is dedicated to all those people out there who are distraught.
