Butterfly (Flash Fiction)

Found on Google Images
FLASH FICTION PROMPT

Like a butterfly.

The soft smile on her face, the fluttering of eyelids too heavy to lift and the brilliance of color that shows in her pale features.

Like a butterfly.

I see her and I see strength. I see the soul inside who drew on everything she had and all that she was to bring her through life to this point. I see her now, as the sun is fading away as the time is coming.

I see her smile and laugh. She is just like a butterfly.

She is beautiful and fragile, but I love her. I love her so very much.

“Mother…”
