Song of the Day: Black Butterfly

Click here to listen to this inspirational, powerful and beautiful song. “Black Butterfly” was released in 1984 and is sung by Deniece Williams. She has the voice of an angel. I like to interpret this song as being a dedication from a parent to their child, or little angel.

I will often post a “Song of the Day” and then later post gift ideas relating to this song of the day.

“Black Butterfly”

Morning light, silken dream to flight
As the darkness gave way to dawn
You’ve survived, now your moment has arrived
Now your dream has finally been born

Black Butterfly, sailed across the waters
tell your sons and daughters
what the struggle brings
Black Butterfly, set the skies on fire
rise up even higher
so the ageless winds of time can catch your wings


While you slept, the promise was unkept
But your faith was as sure as the stars
Now you’re free, and the world has come to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are


Let the current lift your heart and send it soaring
Write the timeless message clear across the sky
So that all of can read it and remember when we need it
That a dream conceived in truth can never die

Cause now that you’re free and the world has come to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are


Yeah, yeah, yes
