Fly away, little wing

I saw my mom on July 22nd

I wrote the following through sobs and tears on July 23rd.

My mom flew away on July 27th

Amy, my daughter dreamed of a teeny tiny bird in her hands on July 31st, the day of her funeral. The teeny bird flew all around us as we sat in a circle. Then it landed in her hands. She tried to hold onto it. It flapped its tiny wings and flew away. It was free, clearly saying "Don't hold on to me"

Amy had NO idea how telling that dream was on the wake of this writing.


To Mom:


Fly away, Fly away

Why are you afraid to fly to God?

Fly away, Fly away

Why are you afraid to leave this skin?

Fly away, Fly away

..Little bird

....eternity is waiting

                                        Fly, fly away.


and so,

she did.

Fly lyrics. Performed by Celine Dione

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too
beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon
will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now,
find the light


I love you mom, and I always will. Fly.

I'm so very sorry Carrie. No words can heal right now I know. I hope your memories of your mom bring you some comfort. She is part of you always.
