A Breeze and a Butterfly

A Breeze and a Butterfly
by JeromeProphet

The rhymes have escaped
The words have run away
These feelings persist
And I've got something to say

Within my heart this truth
I can no longer hide
The answers to the questions
I dare not ask why

Like why I love her madly so.
And why I still insist
This love of ours in flames a glow
Is worth everything we risk

My love you read my words now
You know our love is true
Our careless love knows no Hows
One day you'll say 'I do'

Our pain will be over then
Vanquished with our sin
We rushed where Angels feared to tread
Yet our love's not crushed by them

And now we're tangled you and I
We're lovers like the moon and sky
You and I were meant to be
It's undeniable to see

The secret truth of our love
Is not held in the heart of a dove
No what we are is far from that
Perhaps the Cheshire cat

For we are to each other
Something we can get from no others
We are like a breeze and a butterfly
Flying fragile and fierce into the high

Senator Edward Kennedy Dead At 77

Having been raised a Catholic in the 1960s I can say that I recall asking my parents who "we" were for in the upcoming Illinois 1968 presidential Primary. I was told Bobby Kennedy. Well we all knew what happened there. I remember being awoken to my mother, and sister crying over the breaking news that Robert Kennedy had been assassinated.

And years later I asked my mother about the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated and she told me I broke down crying because everyone else in the house was crying. I was just a little kid then, but I must have sensed that anything so important as to bring the adults to tears was worthy of my own.

As the years past the tabloids kept the Kennedy family, and Jacki O in the spotlight, and I watched them from afar - feeling a bit guilty in the process. But as I learned more about the remarkable Kennedy family, and their history I realized I was witnessing history.

I've always been a Kennedy fan.

I've seen this family survive one tragedy after another, and yet survive. And they will go on.

God Bless You Teddy, and thank you for all the good things you have done for this nation.
