so long dormant, hidden,
barely a dream,
confined to darkness,
Stretching out in new colors, textures, and scents,
a brilliant blur of graceful motion.
Her heart swells, each cell of her being surges in rebirth!
She has been alive before, yet never lived.
Her new form emerges slowly, a delicate unfolding, a blossoming self-discovery,
yet somehow familiar, what she was always destined to be,
before even she could believe.
Each new change dissolves memories and fears of the past,
she barely remembers the anguish to crawl through life before.
She flutters, swirls, and glides gracefully through her new life, a blur of color and secret passion.
No longer a labor for mere survival, but glorious LIFE, lived fully!
Each minute now worth days, weeks, ... an eternity before.
God created butterflies to show me the way,
to help me believe,
knowing my fears.
He smiles to see me becoming,
discovering His plan for me,
the blessings He had prepared for me in advance now able to flow freely.
Knowing before I that the pain before would make my joy complete.
