Float Like a Butterfly

we run and we run
but we can't get away
it's never the future
it's always today

the past is compelling
we cannot return
it's always the present
this we must learn...

once we were lovers
once we were friends
now separated
everything ends

always beginnings
always new starts
always the sounds
of our beating hearts...

we run and we run
until we sit down
breathe in and out
and follow its sound

float like a butterfly
soar like a dove
celestial visions
viewed from above...

it's always the present
it's here that we yearn
now's when life happens
this we must learn

float like a butterfly
flutter around
we don't have to run
we can sit down...
