A Poem by Candy S. Bott

RIP ~ Elizabeth "Boo" Bisland

An Angel on earth
Always so positive
Always helpful,
Always making everyone smile 
so many friends,
a social butterfly
Everyone loves you 

Taken from this earth so soon, so young 
ripped from your mother's arms

An angel from heaven
you visit us often
your spirit lives on
your love lingers
like butterflies flutter
your memories make us smile
even through our tears 

fluttering around us, guiding us, 
letting us know we are loved
protecting us from depression and loneliness.
Lift us up with your wings.

we will all miss you forever
all being better for knowing you
an angel while on earth
our angel now in heaven
Remembering how you fluttered about
every-time we see a butterfly.

I can see your angel here too among the butterflies dancing over the flowering bushes.
Wonderful imagery and metaphor.
Very lovely piece.
Wish Elizabeth eternal bliss in heaven.
