It's Hard to Send Your Butterfly Away

It's hard to send your butterfly away
when yesterday you rocked her to and fro,
but harder still to know she will not stay.

Hold onto memories when she did play
and romp while making angels in the snow.
It's hard to send your butterfly away.

It's hard to allow her do as she may
and pull free from her hair her child's bow,
but harder still to know she will not stay.

Don't forget when beneath the sky you lay
and held her hand in the starlight, but know
it's hard to send your butterfly away.

Hard it’s not to feel pride when they say
your fawn has grown into a graceful doe
but harder still to know she will not stay.

She'll come to thank you on that fateful day
and whisper that it's time for her to go.
It's hard to send your butterfly away,
but harder still to know she will not stay.
