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.
