Oh, leave the darkness
Come out and dance in the sunshine . . .
with the yellow butterflies . . .
Let us follow the little path . . .
along the side of the hill . . .
to where the wild white lilies . . .
hide in clumps of grass . . .
and a thousand dragonflies . . .
glisten in their flight.

Oh, leave the darkness
Come out and dance in the sunshine . . .
with the yellow butterflies!

  14. Beautiful advice for those that live shade ... shade of fear ... Leave the darkness behind ... lovely Margie
    Come out and dance in the sunshine.
    Butterflies are symbolic of New Life.
    Love this.
    wet hugs for you ... has done nothing but rain and a wind blowing. Lovely day ... spent sometime with a girlfriend that is due to have her first baby soon. We had lunch by the lake. As the rain ran down the window panes.
    see you soon.

  15. I always chased 'yellow' butterflies as a kid...I dunno why but I thought they were so full of happiness and so carefree...I think I could leave my darkness when I saw those yellow butterlfies.
