A butterfly appeared one week after
you left us here to remain.

Huge wings danced on delicate wind,
teasing the air like always.

I thought it was you.

Fluttering a bright yellow with white accents.
Perhaps your color shows in this way.

Now, an aura from another realm
compliments the purple of this earth.

I thought it was you.

Violet, lavender, amethyst,
all upon your regal head.

The last you color you so vehemently beamed
from your soul.
