Cherished Memory
(Submitted by Mardi)


The butterfly garden in my side yard is one of the last projects my husband and I did together before he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. It was a very happy summer for us and a cherished memory for me. I came across this thought in a passage one day a few days before he died...

With closed eyes I see you among the flowers
High above the clouds
Your presence blows through me with the breeze
Your smile beams down on through the sun
The full moon brings the light of your laughter to my mind
And the butterfly in all its splendor reminds me
Of your beauty and freedom now
Leaving your love for me lingering in my world
