Butterfly Breaths
Michael R Berman MD 
This poem was written for a little girl, Ariel, who was undergoing therapy for cancer of the kidney. 
Every day awakens
with kisses on your brow;
With mist that veils the early light
and hides the morning clouds.
With butterfly breaths of longer days
Where heard are fewer sighs.
And echoes from a mountain's song,
Dissolving plaintive cries.
No longer will the seasons part,
The year, dividing into four.
Now hours blend into days and weeks,
Weeks to months, forever more.
Every day awakens,
With visions of what's to be:
Spheres full of joy and wonder,
Timeless moments of Infinity.
