Today a Butterfly landed upon my window…
I thought of you,
Such beauty you brought to my life.
Like the soft whisper of butterfly wings
You colored my life
Vibrant hues I never had seen.
Gently like a butterfly you weaved dreams
I had not dreamt before
Now I long for them once more.
Butterfly why did you have to leave?
You flew off to Summerland
Your wings carrying my prayers.
Like a warm summer breeze you touched my life
All too soon you were gone
Now I wait for you to embrace me again.
A butterfly dance upon the flowers of the field
Reminds me how fragile life is
The journey long without wings to soar.
In my soul the butterfly flutters
Or just a longing for things unseen…
