Author's Chapter Notes:
As usual,I do not own any of the characters in this songfic or the song itself.Hope you like it.
Elrond sat looking out over the sea in silence.
Interrupting the peaceful silence,Celebrian came and stood next to him on the balcony.
She stood there for a few minutes.Finally breaking the silence she said
"We are awfully quiet tonight."
Smiling,he answered "Some of us are not,however."
"Oh,Elrond.You are as stubborn as a bull sometimes.What is troubling you?"
"What makes you think I am troubled?" he replied.
"Just tell me."
Elrond sighed.He hated having to share his feelings.Ages of wisdom taught him that to share one's feelings is a sign of vunerability.However,share them he must...
"Do you really want to know?"
"Yes."
Sigh again."Very well.I will tell you."
Softly singing he began...

There's two things I know for sure.
She was sent here from heaven, and she’s daddy’s little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night,
She talks to Jesus, and I close my eyes.
And I thank God for all the joy in my life, But most of all...
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk beside the pony daddy, it’s my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses at night.


"Arwen.You're thinking about Arwen."
Smiling painfully,he nodded.
"You know why she stayed."
"Yes,but..."
"But?"
"I miss her..."

Sweet sixteen today.
She’s looking like her momma a little more every day.
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and makeup, from ribbons and curls.
Trying her wings in a great big world. But I remember...

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you daddy, but if you don’t mind,
I’m only going to kiss you on cheek this time."
With all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precise time.
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly, spread your wings and fly.


Memories rushing back,tears began to roll down his cheeks.Falteringly,he continued...

She’ll change her name today.
She’ll make a promise, and I’ll give her away.
Standing in the bride room just staring at her.
She asked me what I’m thinking, and I said, "I’m not sure,
I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl."
Then she leaned over... and gave me...

Butterfly kisses, with her mama there.
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk me down the aisle daddy, it’s just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?" "Daddy don’t cry."
With all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right.
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses.
I couldn’t ask God for more, man, this is what love is.
I know I’ve gotta let her go, but I’ll always remember.
Every hug in the morning, and butterfly kisses...


The song,thick with tears,ended.
Elrond lowered his head,unable to say anything.
Taking his hand,Celebrian silently led him back to the house.
