Forever

A Poem by Manda
"

When she thinks she's gone forever.... She really isn't

"
You’re gone…
Forever

That’s what they say
But are you?

****

As I sit upon my windowsill
A butterfly swoops to my side

It’s wings a bright yellow
And its eyes a familiar blue

You stare at me
Showing no signs of fear

I put my hand out
Hoping maybe it would climb on

And it did!
It clasped itself upon my left finger

I  held up my hand
To let it fly away

As it did
I took one last look

Watching it gracefully fly away
Into the light blue sky

And once it was out of sight
It hit me like a bag of rocks!

It was her
Our beautiful Jeannie!

They had been wrong
She wasn’t gone

She was here to stay
Forever....
