Butterfly



With a fluttering breath

You sought refuge within my breast

Above my heart had you asked to stay

And was answered with a yes you may

There are those who say that

To be touched by a butterfly

Is to be touched by grace

If this is true then I have seen grace

Face to face more than once upon a time

They live a few days

Before they wither away and die

A few days of new life

Please don’t cry

It makes you see

Life as it should be

Not the fighting, not the dying

Just beauty in the things that are

And will forever be
