Yesterday, I missed you even more than usual.
Memories that tug at my heart.
The simple, everyday…
at the time “taken for granted” moments.
Coffee or lunch at our favorite place.
The many, many laughs we shared.
Shopping for that elusive “perfect” pair of shoes.
All the treats that I didn’t really need;
but you wanted me to have.
Time well spent in the kitchen.
And so much more…
I felt the weight of your absence.
Your photo on the fridge; still smiling at me.
This time; such a sad, small consolation.
Heavy on my mind and heart.
The connection seemed broken.
Too much to bear.
But then you came.
Suddenly and without a doubt.
You were there, once again.
Your spirit soaring free.
So close by.
Blue butterfly beside me.
And what could be better.
Inside a store!
A perfectly chosen “our kind” of place.
A beautiful miracle.
Wrapped in delicate wings of pale shimmering blue.
You circled me, again and again.
The wonder of the moment.
I embraced and held your spirit.
Close again to my heart.
Love, is never-ending.
It will sustain, inspire and shelter us.
For as long as we live.
And far beyond this earth.
