"Butterfly Fly Away"

Songwriters: Glen Ballard and Alan Silvestri
Sung by Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus

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 dy
All along and knowing just what to do
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away
Butterfly fly away

I love you my sweet little girl. Although you weren't here long enough for us to see exactly who you'd be we know we will still have a chance to see you make your dreams come true. We just had to let you spread your wings and fly away for now .. until we meet again. I love you!

Happy Easter!

As Easter came, I was so very sad. I was sad about what I was missing - buying you a pretty little Easter dress and doing your hair cute with little bows. As your brothers painted Easter eggs (and, yes, of course they remembered to make a few with your name on them) I thought about how you would be old enough to make a mess with them this year. As they searched for the eggs hidden by that tricky Easter Bunny, again, I thought of you. Whether you would be using a walker or braces to walk or sitting in your wheelchair, your Brothers would have made sure you had fun with them looking everywhere to find those painted eggs. I was sad that you were missing out being with us - having fun with your very special Brothers. But then I realized, you are even luckier - you were spending the day with Jesus, another very special Brother. And it is because of him that we will be able to be with you again some day - and enjoy all of the special moments that we feel we have "missed" here on Earth. Isn't that what Easter is all about?
I love you and am missing you so very much, my little Bai.
Hugs and Kisses from Mommy, Daddy, and your Brothers! Happy Easter!
