This pendant hangs around my neck,
a talisman of angelic proportion,
to be a gentle reminder of a life that once was.
This simple butterfly
holds the key to my beginning
and serves as a great source of comfort
when I feel like I am falling
into the abysmal chasm of grief.
For this charm holds a piece of you,
of each of you,
and I draw strength knowing that a part of you
will always be with me,
there to give me that sense of your presence
whenever I need it most.
Ashes to ashes
as yours are forever bound to the other.
