Senior Butterflies

where do the senior butterflies go when they're in pain
who lifts their spirits when they feel pain

who holds their wings when they feel fear
who whispers to them that God is near

who plants the milkweed that nourishes their souls
who finds a resting place when their antennas grow old

the same one who cares for me and you is
the same one who cares for butterflies too

the above is a butterfly that i found
on the ground about 3 years ago.
she is in a jar and her spirit still lives on.
