Butterflies


Butterflies
In my belly ...
That's how I felt
The day
I met you.
The day
Our eyes met.
The day
We first smiled.

So long ago ...
Or so, it seems,
On certain days
When housework -
Too many chores!
Active toddler,
Lack of sleep,
Aching back
Knock me down
(Or just about)

And then I wish ...
Wish I could fly
On butterfly wings
Back to the day
We said hello.
Back to the moment
We first kissed.
Back to the time
Of you and I.

Just then
She gives me
Butterfly kisses,
Tight, little hugs,
Sloppy, warm smooches.
"Mommy, I wuv you,"
Our little one says.

And just like that
My heart takes flight,
Like a butterfly
Soaring high over
Flower gardens
So fragrant,
So lovely,
Dripping with nectar.

I hug her back,
Return those
Butterfly kisses,
And think to myself,
"I am so blessed."
