~Butterfly effect~

~Butterfly effect~

A Poem by Frieda P
"

_this is not goodbye, love you to the moon and back, miss you more than life itself ♥♥

"


You can't flutter by, 

  and not affect everyone
   you've so graciously touched,
heart of gold wrapped 
   in ethereal veiled wings of strength
we gazed upon your emboldened flight
     right from the beginning of time
blustering storms now overshadowed,
     cast in your onward flight
yet, so bittersweet you've risen
     above the ashen earth's rebound
destined for skies of brilliance
   free from ambivalence's rhyme
awash in your splendor of glory
  overcoming in your wayward graces,
what may be is still a mystery
   to all of those who believe,
tomorrow's whispering promises linger
       on a zephyr quietly awaiting ~

~you can't flutterby and not affect everyone you've touched~




“It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” 
― Rose Kennedy

Oh Frieda, of all of your poetry, you have written for, or about your sister, this one is very special, in the way, you have written the perfect eulogy for her. I hope, when my time comes, I have someone like you, to tell the world, who I was, as a person, a friend and a sister, to them. Thank you, for sharing this poem, with us.

"You can't flutter by, 
  and not affect everyone"-- the brilliance of the 1st two lines easily prophesies of the brilliance of the rest of the poem. Artfully worded(as ever!) I really enjoyed this today, and I hope to see you back soon.

This is poignant Frieda Her imprint is everywhere you look and the pain is deep but I love how you capture her beauty and know her love flutters brightly around you. Thinking of you.
