A Sign From Dad

by Kathy Wormhood

Tiny Butterfly Feeling, wanting, needing
A sign from Dad
Gone so quickly
Missed so deeply
No time to say goodbye
I search for something
A sign that says “I’m here”
Alas, one appears
Appears again and again
Encircles me
In mysterious ways, speaks to me
I acknowledge it
And when I do, it returns
The brown speckled butterfly
A sign that says, “I’m here”
