Mama's Butterfly Bush and Letting Go

Yesterday, I took one last look around the home place.
The blooms on Mama's butterfly bush are beginning to fall,
still some remain.
I watched to see if the butterflies that were swirling around would land.
I so wanted to capture the moment.
There she was!
And ever so swiftly, she was gone again.
So, I dried my tears and said goodbye.
Goodbye, Mama and Daddy.
I'll let you go.
I won't return to the homeplace again.
You are free.
Somehow, I feel a little lighter today too.
I am okay.
You have taught me well.
I am letting go.


  1. Bonnie, Such a heartfelt post. When I lost my own sweet mother. I so remember weeks later seeing her in a dream and her telling me all was well. It took time, but that is what time is for....healing. Take care!


I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
