Come Sit By Me A While : Sweet Butterfly Of Mine.

ERIN AND VAL'S GARDEN.
ERIN AND VAL'S GARDEN. | Source

Please come in and let us sit by Erin And Val's garden.

I had started to compose this hub when Dai phoned with some very sad news ;last year we worked together ;Dai driving and myself caring for Jasmin ( changed name for the purpose of this hub.)

She was sat in her wheelchair and couldn't talk or walk on her own;she was also fed through a tube.

However it didn't take me long to see the true person behind the disabilities and slowly but surely realised that there was much more for sweet Jasmine.We became so close and I learnt so much from this experience.However I was only filling in until the true carer trurned from a long illness;I knew this was going to come about but I really did miss this sweet angel when this actually came about..

Dai informed me on Monday that she had been taken to hospital and had to have her Appendix removed. This was done the very next day (Tuesday) but this morning about an hour ago Dai rang to let me know that she had passed away in the night.

I am still in shock but my heart goes out to her devoted family ;she was only fifteen year old and was one of three children;two girls and one boy.

They all idolised her and will miss her so much.

"Today's hub I dedicate this hub to Jasmine."

"R I P my sweet sweet angel."

Eddy.

One sweet butterfly

As soft as midnight whispers

Caressing colours.

Whispers

Fluttering high

Flowing on so sublime

Leaving life's Chrysalis behind

From a golden spirit of loveliness

Magical beauty from within

A heart of soft blossom

Singing softly

Whispers.

Butterfly your vivid aura

Under that sunshine of love

Tender to touch

To charm in eternal hope and care

Evening song a magical verse

Rhymes of love and compassion

Forever yes eternal

Lightly sings with a feather-like touch

You've set each spirit free.

A myriad of colours

Warmth radiates

a soft sweet whipser

Light and tuneful.......................

Antenae exploration

Heart so loving so full

Great love well timed and shared in abundance....................

Tenderness and warmth

from a rainbow sky high

Dew diops in magical repose.................................

Nectar a magical aura

Clinging with great ease

Flying through the air

Filing each heart with joy..............................

That awesome nectar of love

Shared with all way up high

Softly shared in soft sweet sprinkles

Worlds of grateful prayers ; full of warmth ; to love;to share ; to care..................................

Flowers blosom on the wings of time

Instinct so oblivious so serene

Unconditional charms fill each meadow

In my heart so full of happiness and joy...................................

As free as each new born breeze

Flying up to heavens so high

An elusive butterfly

A beauty,a wonder,to behold...................................

The sad tides of time now spent

Paradise now beckons...................................

I rest my wings in a calmness almost serene

Life's nectar a leading trail

Through each path winding upwards and onwards

leading to the heart of paradise.................................

Life's precious rainbows

calm and serene

Absorb each colour each image from above

flying high in coy trepidation....................................

Each heart lifting

each picture soft and teasured

Butterfly of day and night

come fill my heart wiht pride...........................

A flowing mature velvet touch

toned as Autumn leaves of love................

A Butterfly Of Wonder.

As she rests on

her soft cloud of love;

Almost virginal the flight

of one pure white dove.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

x

Wings gently flutter

in soundless magical bliss

A wondrous emotion

so loving a kiss.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

Feeling a soft flutter;

And resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of golden wonder.

So enchanted yet so daring

Very fragile yes so strong;

In this haven's beauty so clear

Oh yes to love to belong.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

That warm and caressing breath

As she whispers in my ear;

"Your world will always be full

Of a deep heartfelt wonder."

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

From my being rushed a warmth;

Enveloped in life's enchantment;

I knew my baby you were safe

Yes so happy so content.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

Live your life Mother dear

I am now free of pain;

You now have your legacy

and Bill's wondrous campaign.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

Today I also have work

Looking after babes in heaven;

You are surrounded by beauty

As you sit by our sweet haven.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

I fly around in Sunshine

Each day I see you gain;

Your mission now to help others

To cope with their own pain.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

x

Now I must return

To my world happy and clear;

Little ones my soul protects

Each one I love so dear.

CHORUS.

I sit beside your garden

A sweet soft flutter;

Resting on my shoulder

A butterfly of wonder.

With an honest look back at life

A chapter now faced with honest heart

I cares each new birth

Serenity filling each nook and cranny

A beauty absorbed

in the life that time forgot

A story through the ages

A winner so bright

For the awesome strength

of one golden Butterfly.

My baby my angel so divine

You gather a wondrous presence;

Each angel sprinkled

With loves eternal essence.

Each day I move on

As I sit by your side.

The door to my heart

Always open so wide.

Oh my sweet baby

From your home up above;

With a soul so beautiful

Carried by the bird of love.

Lost is not a word I store

In my grieving healing heart

You are closer than ever

Right here in my heart.

Jasmine’s soul is captured

By each warm heart above.

Disabilities are non-existent

No judgements, only love.

Eddy, I just read your "That Blue Lagoons Of Life" there the color-scheme was in the hues of blue and turquoise. Now, I entered into an amazing world of golden warm colors. You have a wonderful gift of turning your hubs into beautiful art. This is such a sweet and loving tribute to your sweet angel, Jasmine. My thoughts and prayers are going out to her and her family.

Thank you.

God bless,

Sannel

It's very sad to hear the passing of a young life. Even if she was trapped in her body, she was able to convey who she really was and communicate her feelings. I am sure she is watching down here on Earth and she is flying like a butterfly with no limitation now.

Receive my thoughts and prayers for you, Dai and her family.

Thank you for writing such a nice tribute in memory of Jasmin! I love your choice of pictures as always!

I really do not have words to express my feelings after reading this. So sweet yet so much full with tragedy. The whole collection is some thing really sublime like the sweet soul. But God's child returns to home to be happy. A true tribute the lost soul from among us but there the butterfly is flying among myriad hues. You are a genius to express this piece in such rhythm. Thank you for sharing this one and I am sharing too. Votes all ++++++++

Eddy, it is so kind of you to write such a beautiful tribute to this young teen. I believe we come into this world with a spirit to touch other lives.

We think we are helping others, but in many cases, it is us who have been touched by this tiny spirit....it is us who have been blessed.

A beautiful tribute to your little friend, Jasmine.

Hi DJ thank you so much for this comment.

It is indeed so sad and now she is at peace with all the other you angels from Heaven where disabilities do not exist;a soul to fly freely with my Val and Erin and also every single person we have lost .Lost is not a word I use because my angels are safe in my heart as I know all yours are also.

Thank you again DJ and this comment so appreciated.

For someone who has not experienced romance for a very long time, these verses bring me to the reality that Perfect Love and Serenity do exist. Just look at all Creation and meditate on its beauty and you can see elegance and peace. The music has to be ethereal, flowing and soft, just like the images you place here. Thank you for inviting me to share in that experience.

Perhaps your friend who this hub is dedicated to is experiencing now the rest she now deserves and these images here in this hub have become the decor in her new home.

Dear Eddy, you have had much sadness lately. But you always manage to turn it into beautiful and inspiring tributes. You saw the lovely soul that was trapped inside such a young body. My grandmother once told me, and it has stuck with me ever since, that if you see a butterfly, it is an angel in disguise. If you see a butterfly soon after a dear soul has passed, it is most probably that person letting you know they are okay!

Voted this Up+ my loving friend,

Pearl
