Chrysalis - Poem by Christine Natale

Where are you?
Right here, little one.
It’s very dark.
Yes, it is.
Are you cold?
No, not really, are you?
No, well maybe a little.
Be still - it’s easier.
I know, but I’m restless.
It won’t be long.
Do you remember?
Remember what?
Remember the light.
Of course I remember.
It was warm.
Sometimes too warm.
Never too warm.
Hush - go to sleep.

I have pretty dreams.
Yes, I do too.
I can fly.
So can I.
It’s very beautiful.
Yes, I know.
Will we fly together?
Of course little one.
Where will we go?
Everywhere I suppose.
Can we fly to God?
I don’t see why not.
I’ll be good.
You are good little one.

I’m tired.
Then sleep for a while.
Will I wake up again?
Certainly you will awaken.
I hope that you will be here.
I am here, little one.
I was beautiful you know.
What do you mean?
As a caterpillar.
Of course you were.
Did you see my spots?
I saw them every day.
I think I crawled rather well.
No one crawled better.
I liked the way you crawled too.
Thank you my dear.
We crawled nicely together, didn’t we?
We made a fine couple.
Will we be beautiful again?
I have no doubt we will.
Will we have spots?
Yes, we will have spots.
What color will they be?
I don’t know, wait and see.
Will we be the same?
Go to sleep little one.

Yes, I am sleepy.
Let yourself go - dissolve.
I am dissolving.
Let your wings grow.
Wings - how wonderful.
Yes, it is wonderful.
I love you.
I love you too, little one.
We will fly together?
Yes we will climb very high.
Where will we come to rest?
In the heart of God.
Oh - I thought so.
Now hush - dissolve - grow.
Will you be there when I wake up?
I will always be here.
Good night my love
Sleep well little one.
Good night.
