God, I don’t understand…original song lyrics for Butterfly Release…

On July 30th at 11:00 at Calumet Park Cemetery there will be a Butterfly Release ceremony.  It is meant to be a time of prayer, song and a release of a live butterfly by each attendee who registers for their free butterfly.  This is the third annual event, and it is anticipated that

a gathering of 2oo-300 people will share in this beautiful ceremony.

A new song by Daniel Moran, shown below, will be part of the agenda.  There will be an opening prayer, two short songs from a Gavin Vogel played on a recorder, a remembrance of Jan Hahn read by Leslie Vogel (an owner who passed away last July 17th), the song shown below sung by Daniel Moran and accompanied on the piano by John Ochoa and Joe Klapak on guitar, and a Kenny Chesney song sung by Joe Klapak with John Ochoa.

Call by July 15th to be sure to get a live butterfly.  You are still welcome to attend even if you don’t have a butterfly to release.  It is a truly spiritual and emotionally satisfying hour to share with your friends and neighbors who join with you as an attendee.  Be sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating.

God, I don’t understand

Every night when the sun goes down, I lie awake alone and scared.

Think of all the dreams we’ve known, all the hopes that we once shared.

Now my bed is my enemy, broken lives beyond repair.

Screaming quiet crushing me, oh my God this is so unfair.

God, I don’t understand, living now a broken man,

Doin ’bout the best I can, trusting is my only plan.

Taste you in each breath I take, every time I close my eyes…

See you in the works of God, hiding in a thin disguise.

Roses with a scent so pure, wings of gentle butterflies…

Wonder why He took you home, leaving me these tears to cry.

God, I don’t understand, living now a broken man,

Doin ’bout the best I can, trusting is my only plan.

A mom, a dad, a baby boy…a little girl, now a broken toy.

Since they’re gone we miss the noise, living life with little joy.

Here we are with our butterflies, whispering our wish to them,

In hopes that when we set them free, we’ll find a little peace within.

God, we don’t understand, bless us with Your healing hands.

Send us grace to understand, this is not what we had planned.
