Precious Butterfly


It seems like just yesterday
When I looked into your eyes
and sighed as I watched you lie
in that hospital bed slowly getting ready to die
Holding your hand while holding
back tears in my eyes
because I wasn't ready to say bye

I remember thinking when I was 9
That you will always be mine
and you would never leave my side
so when I turned 25 minus 9
my heart was broken and I cried
I could never imagine living life
without you by my side
remembering the many times
I saw you on you knees by your bed side
pouring out your heart to the most high

Now you are getting ready
to spread your wings and fly
to that place in the sky
where no more death resides
So I guess this is not bye bye
but see you later sometime
my precious butterfly
