Flying with Butterflies

Posted in Inspiration with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 2, 2014 by allisonlabine

I watched you race across the field
Flying with the butterflies…
Wonder Alight
In Your Eyes and
Eternal Sunshine in Your Smile.
And
My heart opened and my
Soul Sang:

You are
Life.
You are Love, child of this Earth.

Then you took my hand,
Your Laughter Riding on the Wind–
And you Soared;

In Innocence,
In Wonder,
In a Soul Set Free…

the beauty of motion inside a breeze…

May our mothers and fathers and grandparents, and friends, and anyone we hold dear stay with us as long as possible. When they are called from us, may they still stay…in our hearts, forever.

Across the universe and for all of time…

“Twice as beautiful is the experience when two hearts forged in the fires of different lives perceive the same thing and a shared smile escapes, removing all barriers from that moment.” – Allison LaBine
