"A BROTHER AND A BUTTERFLY"
Though we're apart
You've made your presence known.
In a moment you are here,
And I pretend we are having conversation once again.
I know you hear me;
I feel your gentle response encouraging me
As you strategically sit on flowers or brush against my shoulder
On a warm summer day.
And when I close my eyes, your light remains.
I feel you near amid the night;
When I wake, You are still here
Soft on my cheek no reason for flight
So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: The old things have passed away; behold new things have come; and all this is from God who has reconciled us to himself through Christ. Corinthians 2:5
