Fly Butterfly, Fly!

FLY   BUTTERFLY   FLY

 

THERE WAS A SEASON IN YOUR LIFE THAT SEEMED TOO LONG

YOU NEEDED HELP AND FOR YOUR FRIENDS TO BE STRONG

WITH LOVE THEY CARRIED YOU IN THEIR HEARTS AS YOU TRAVELED

THROUGH A PLACE CALLED “WILDERNESS”

NOT ALL COULD FULLY UNDERSTAND AND THEREFORE MISSED

OUT ON THE JOURNEY.

 

YOU LEARNED THAT

HEALING TAKES TIME AND THERE CAN BE MUCH PAIN

BUT WITH GOD’S GRACE AND MERCY THERE IS MUCH

MORE TO GAIN

YOUR CRUTCHES WERE CREATED FROM FAITH AND PRAYERS

AND KNOWING THAT YOUR FRIENDS WERE THERE

HELPED STRENGTHEN YOU EACH DAY

 

YOU KNEW THAT GOD WAS NEAR

EVEN THOUGH HIS VOICE YOU SOMETIMES COULDN’T HEAR

IN THE WORD YOU DID READ

NIGHT AND DAY

FOR THE NEED

WAS GREAT

 

ONE DAY YOU CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT

A BRIGHT COLORFUL BUTTERFLY IN FLIGHT

HOPE ROSE IN YOUR HEART

AND GOD GAVE YOU A PICTURE THAT WOULD NEVER DEPART

BUT THE TIME WAS YET TO BE

FOR GOD WAS PREPARING YOU TO BE SET FREE

 

IN THIS SEASON, YOU WERE LIKE A CATERPILLAR

ON A TREE

EATING LEAVES

DOWN IN THE GRASS

SPENDING TIME WITH GOD

REFLECTING ON HIS BEST

 

PEACE CAME AND SOON

YOU RETREATED TO A SPECIAL PLACE, A CACOON

WHERE ONLY YOU AND GOD COULD GO

IN THIS RESTING PLACE, YOU SPENT TIME IN PRAYER

SO THAT YOU WOULD KNOW

GOD’S FULL AND PERFECT WILL

 

IT WAS THERE METAMORPHOSE TOOK PLACE

SO THAT YOU COULD FACE

AND CONQUER ALL THE TOMORROWS

 

THOUGH QUITE CONTENT IT WAS TIME TO LEAVE

TO BECOME ALL YOU WERE MEANT TO BE

LEANING ON GOD AND EYES OPENED WIDE

YOU TOOK YOUR FIRST FLIGHT AS A BUTTERFLY

 

AND FLY YOU DID WITH ANGELES BY YOUR SIDE

GOD COMMANDING THEM TO PROTECT AND GUIDE

LOVE, FAITH AND JOY FLOW THROUGH YOU

TOUCHING LIVES AS ONLY YOU CAN DO

GOD SMILES DOWN ON YOU EACH DAY

AS HE HIMSELF HAS KISSED YOUR VERY WINGS

AND SENT YOU ON YOUR WAY
