Butterfly Fly Away

Butterfly Fly Away lyrics
Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Silvestri, Alan;

You tucked me in, turned out the light
Kept me safe and sound at night
Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
Had to drive me everywhere
You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all alone
Make a living, make a home
Must have been as hard as it could be

And when I couldn't sleep at night
Scared things wouldn't turn out right
You would hold my hand and sing to me

Caterpillar in the tree
How you wonder who you'll be
Can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might
Don't you worry, hold on tight
I promise you there will come a day
Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
Flap your wings now you can't stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
We've been waiting for this day
All along and knowing just what to do
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away
Butterfly fly away

I watched the Hannah Montana movie when I was pregnant and this song stuck out to me.  I learned how to sing it to my belly so that I would be able to sing it to my little girl.  This has easily became one of my favorite songs now.  I still listen to it and wishing for the day that we return to be with each other we will be able to sing this song to her.  My little girls room was decorated with dragonflies, butterflies, and ladybugs.  She was my little caterpillar and I got to see her beauty come she is truly a butterfly to me.

  1. I can't seem to stop crying after reading your story. My mum had a stillborn little girl 36 years ago after waiting 10 years to conceive. She later had my sister and I and I have always grown up knowing that I have another sister waiting to meet me. My mum still thinks of her often and she really is a part of our family. She gave birth in the days when you couldn't photograph them or do the molds. She didn't even get to go to her funeral. You are so blessed to have had these things to remember her by.

    This is a link to a lovely song by a NZ singer Tiki Tane. It may not be your thing but I think it is beautiful and a friend who has just lost her 3 year old boy loved it too. You will be there when she opens her eyes again and you will be able to raise her as you always wanted.

    Take care,
