Butterflies

 

Butterflies
Fly up high
Carry a message to my love
who lives beyond the sky
I saw Him deep within a dream
His heart and mine were one
He seated me on a hummingbird's back
I rode her past the sun
In crystal flight she split the sky
We soared, then dipped and climbed
Through endless halls of prismed light
And through a jeweled door
I caught a glimpse of heaven bright
and fair as endless day
My love was there, My Lord was He
And death and sorrow ceased
He reigned in splendored majesty
His land forever peace

Awakening, my soul was grieved,
for earth-bound still 'twas I
But Hope flew higher than
Butterflies
And helped my heart to see
That this was truth, the dream was real
As was my Lord's
Promise to return for me
