Benny On The Wings of The Monarch Butterflys


  I saw a shooting star racing into the heavens!
  I looked for a long, long time watching that bright star,
 and
soon the whole sky seemed to be  flashing with lights
 and the sky was filled  zillions of  colors
 just like  a brand new sunset.
The sky was filled with rainbow colors-
you know-...
 purples and yellow and greens and blues
and other rainbow colors.
It was  as though the Universe was painting the sky!
And
then flitting and fluttering colors
 of orange and gold,
 yellow and black-
came from no where,,,,
 And then I saw them!
My heart was pounding!!!
  I knew immediately- what I saw-
 The skys were filled with  the Monarch Butterfly's
and they were coming from everywheres !
The butterfly's  were carrying someone on their wings
into the sky!
Higher and higher into the skys
 the butterfly's flew....
 I saw the bright orange cape blowing freely over his shoulders
 and I saw the smile,
I will never forget the smile.....
  and I knew immediately it was Benny!
Two French Bulldogs
All the  Monarch butterfly's from all over our world
 changed their migration route
 to hold Benny on their wings
celebrating his life,,,
and to carry him to the Rainbow Bridge
 where
so many of our friends are waitng!
Thank you Benny for sharing your life with us.
We will love you forever.
Together we sit side by side-
 shoulder to shoulder-
 holding paws
until we are all together again.
Together we can go love his family and sweet sister Lily.
nitey nite
love

Tweedles....
I am so very sorry for the loss of your Friend, Benny. I never really "knew" him, except I was aware that he was battling cancer.
I love your poem, Friend.
