Shadows and Butterflies
by Barbara Bassett

We walk in shadows all of our days
But there can be no shadows without a sun.
And life will continue to challenge and taunt
Until our life's work is done.
Each of us are here for a purpose
Though none know what it might be.
Just think of the celebration
When finally we are free !

Watch the butterflies as they flutter
From Hollyhock to the rose
In search of a blossom's perfection
On a journey that each of them knows.
As their wings lift them up to the heavens
Know our spirits will rise on the wind
And the journey is only beginning.
There is no such thing as an end.
