BUTTERFLIES

Butterflies

Clouds passing away swiftly.
Like the desert sand.
Laying peaceful on the ground.
Seeing the worlds silent stand.
Breathing faintly with no sound.
While my life slips back into Gods hands.
Counting each beat from my heart.
Leaving behind this shallow land.
Taking one last glimpse in my eye.
Something came to carry me away.
Without giving me a chance to say goodbye.
Not wanting a reason to stay.
Gliding away into the blue sky. 
Fully departed from my body where I lay.
My life in front of me revealed.
Blessing all those days I would pray.
God protecting me with his shield.
Kept his promise to take me back one day.
Now I am back where I belong.
Pass the horizon of the ocean sky.
Living among the butterflies.
Reunited with my love ones.
Who where also carried by butterflies.
For you I will wait beyond the sun.
Somewhere deep inside the skies.
When your life on earth is done.
You will also be carried by butterflies.

If for some reason you are carried of by bats.
It is your own fault.
You will be put in a dark cave with the rats.
All alone locked in your own vault.

I'm too heavy to be carried by butterflies. Also, Alfred and Robin would miss me. Liked your Poem. I'll give you Diana Prince's #. ---Batman

Such a serene write. The opening of a heart whose Rose is in its fullest bloom. Sometimes it is better to keep your comment short, especially when the word you want to use is excellent. Once again you let us deeper into your mind and open your heart and you sing a beautiful song. Excellent. Your Friend always. Hugs....Vladislav. A definite seven and fave.
