Forever Butterfly
Forever Butterfly

There was a girl
Who longed to fly
Free of all worry
Like the butterfly

Often the burdens
Filled her mind
Until a sunny smile
She could not find

Lost in the clouds
Dark with despair
Not a flicker of light
Danced in the air

How could she smile
Without reason why
Or believe in someday
Wishes cast to the sky

Hope almost lost
Tear fell upon page
Dread melted into
Dream upon the page

Smile played on lips
Belief poured from pen
Dreams coming to life
Over and over again

At last she knew
Purpose hers all along
To sing of life and love
In her poetic songs

When her wings
Feel unable to fly
She writes until light
Flutters cross the sky

Hope forever present
On her dreams she flies
On wings of inspiration
She's forever a butterfly
