Butterflies From Heaven
Written by Marlene Laplante

I sat in the shade of my favorite tree
Shedding tears for loved ones I no longer see
Memories filled the moments to cheer me inside
Made me wonder a while the reason I’d cried
I thought of the good times we had in the past
The love that was then was love that would last
My eyes turned to flowers in the garden nearby
A movement of colours had caught my eye
So many butterflies dancing around
Kissing the blossoms they all did surround
A couple broke free and flew over to me
One on my hand while the other danced free
My spirit was lifted such calm came to be
Butterflies from heaven had visited me
