Butterfly Poem

I did not write this.  Just found it on a website and wanted to share it... 

You were safe and warm
inside my womb
transforming and growing
just like a cocoon

We did anxiously await
for the day to arrive
Not knowing your fate
and that we'd be saying goodbye

God had a plan
it was different from ours
To take you to heaven
Way up past the stars

Like the butterfly emerges
from it's cocoon
Like the bud of a rose
getting ready to bloom

Your spirit is set free
spread your wings and take flight
He's waiting for you
go into the light

I'll cry for awhile
maybe for years
Until I hold you in heaven
Where there are no more tears


  1. Thanks for your post on my blog. It made me smile and I am so glad that you understand where I am coming from. I just don't want to be sad anymore!

    I am sorry for your losses. I am glad that you haven't been swollowed whole by the potential sadness.

    I LOVE your blog... great posts.

    Looking forward to following your journey and best of luck.

  2. Awwwww... thanks so much! One day at a time, and step by step... towards motherhood. :)
