For d

by Hellon   Sep 22, 2015

"Mommy, what is to die?"

"To die is to go away"

"Away where mommy?"


Hush now child
to die is just the start of another journey...
do not fear.

A butterfly visits many flowers
in its lifetime so...

now it's your turn to make flight,
spread your pretty wings
and explore all the flowers
in your new home.

My precious remember...

I will find you in the heather
I will find you in autumn leaves
I will find you in the gust of wind

I will always find you...

    Congratulations on this winning poem, Hellon. It is a very touching write. Indeed, what to say to a small child, when it wants to know what comes after this life... You worded it well.
    I hope no one stole this poem, like they once stole another poem you wrote for a member of your family that died?

    Well done,
