Some members have asked me
When they see my comments with a butterfly-why?

It is both a symbol of survival 
And a tribute to my son 
Based on his tragic death 
When my grief had just begun 

Parents Worst Nightmare 
For Phyllis and me
Became a reality 
Brought us to our knees

We joined a support group 
The Compassionate Friends
Without their support 
Life’s quality ends

The butterfly’s their symbol 
A transition in life
From caterpillar to butterfly 
Starts to modify the strife  

There’s two phases to this symbol 
Each one is unique
When I see the blue butterfly 
It’s like hearing him speak 

The other meaning is a bit more profound 
It represents an afterlife 
When we’ll meet on new ground 

The grieving process never ends
But the pain can subside 
This we learned from our “Friends “
When life quality arrived 

The final reward is one I now see
When you see the butterfly 
Don’t think of me-Think of our Marc
And how  happy we’d  be
