Like a butterfly for Ma Lucille Dowell

Like a butterfly, you flew

Painting the skies with your love,

With your kind beauty

In the darkest of nights,

You shone…

Illuminating the dark

Making your light a pathfinder


Now you have given us the path

And will only watch us spread the light



I learned of my friends passing. I am convinced she rests peacefully with God. Rest in peace Ma Lucille. I wish you could read my poetry one more time.
