You’re my butterfly

by arianne

This weekend we spent time with a butterfly.

We didn’t catch it, it was just waiting for us.  First Jamie picked it up, so big and yellow and friendly.  They had a moment.

Then Charlie had a turn.  He said it tickled.

It’s amazing how you calm down to hold a butterfly.  Time seems to stand still.

Even Jonah had some time with it. The light and lovely perfect little thing was bigger than his hands.

Then it was simply ready to move on.  And flew away.

These children, doing so well, I can’t believe they’ll fly away someday.  But I’m so glad they can.

You are the most beautiful thing
I’ve ever seen
You shine just like sunlight rays
On a winter snow
I just had to tell you so

Your eyes sparkle as the stars
Like the moon they glow
Your smile could light the world on fire
Or did you know ?

Your mind’s full of everything
That I want to know
I just had to let you know
I just had to tell you so
You’re my butterfly
Fly high
Fly fly fly

-Lenny Kravitz, “Butterfly”
