My Butterfly

 
 A perfumed breeze with summer lavender

Shapeless smoked clouds had come and gone

Through verdant valleys I strolled along

Honeycombed hues warmed the new dawn

A golden butterfly glided in the distance

I just stood still and watched his flight

From one flower to another

 His flapped wings fluttered

I could not let him out of my sight

I wondered 'bout this blissful beauty.

 Towards the riverbank

I watched him roam

If I could only fly away with him

to destinations always unknown

 Imagine what places he has been

what many glories he has seen

A perfect waterfall tumbling

into a clear blue pond

Wet dewdrops glimmering 'pon the grass

as the sleepy sun starts to rise

A doe with her fawn

taking those fragile first steps

 bees buzzing by

swarming back to their hive

I watched in amazement

in awe of his grace

I floated along

as he flittered away

 We hovered together through

a path between twin lakes

 then and there I kissed him

before he silently slipped away

That's the last time I saw him

cuz now stone towers have been built

Nature's been destroyed and

the butterflies have been laid to rest
