POTD 10th May 2018 A dedication to our departed Mum, Anne Forbes. And to all the dearly departed Mums who celebrate Mother’s day on the second Sunday in May. We will meet again. The day came when she had to leave And we were left behind to grieve If we could wish her back for a day A million things we would need to say
As exquisite as painted silk these wings I soar past clouds ~ with a Soul that sings
Every precious moment by her side Fighting back tears we hold inside Knowing she would go away The Wish ~ was only for a day.
In a whirl of color flying fast Hastening to a future of Ever last
A Wish granted ~ a butterfly in our midst An astral sensation like we’ve been kissed The Sun shines brighter on this glorious day The whispering breeze that seems to say
Pearlescent petals in the air Shimmering sun beams everywhere
I’m always here ~ I watch you all And comfort you if you falter or fall So dry your tears ~ no need to grieve My tangible form ~ you must believe
I never left ~ I love you still To Eternity’s end ~ I always will On a whispering wind that gently sighs I fly like a butterfly ~ there are no goodbyes
POTD 10th May 2018 Video Clip: "On The Wings Of A Butterfly" by Jimmy Scott.

Thanks so much Jo, and it took me a long time finding that perfect video, and this one suited perfectly. Not only does Jimmy Scott sound like my brother singing, but it also has the violin orchestral backing (my dearly departed father was a violinist), so glad that you liked it, Thanks from both Cecilia and myself Jo.....Maria xxx
