This evening was V's last time with this group as a civilian... at least for the next several years... Both she and I were (are!) tired and emotions were (are!) running high as she curled up next to me as we sang. Dang we had a great time tonight.
I found that one song really ambushed me tonight but it spoke my mind so strongly that I HAD to put it here. I made it through one time (we do each chant/song at least 3 or 4x) and kinda 'lost it' as I felt each word get caught in my heart, and then my throat.
I think many of you will understand. So tonight I bid you goodnight with a chant that I dedicate to my butterfly, my V. "I love you, baby"
Little butterfly, rise
To the calling of your spirit
And know you are held in love.
