Like a Butterfly

Updated: Aug 28

When that last breath is taken

the air in the room leaves for just a moment

leaving those in its presence

holding their breath

it is at that moment when we are all reminded

how truly fragile and precious life is

Life is much like a butterfly, whose wings, which

are delicate in nature, are powerful, miraculous, and strong

sometimes able to make it through fierce winds

while other times, no longer able to fly, feeling the

wind blowing through the tiny tears in its wings

knowing … the end is near

Life is like that … fierce, strong, fragile, and precious … like a butterfly
