Love is like a butterfly in so many, many ways
Brings a bit of sunshine even on gloomy days
Makes our soul feel lighter just to know it's there
Gives our spirit wings as if floating in the air
Carries us to places that we never knew before
Comes in many sizes, shapes and hues galore

Once we've felt it we wish to bind it to us tight
But like a frail butterfly it needs release in flight
For if we try to cage it and hold it in a pen
We'll crush its wings and it will never fly again
Keep love glowing in our hearts each and every day
And always remember to give some of it away

Every little bit we give to someone else to share
Comes back tenfold and we've got so much to spare
Put your love on gossamer wings, give it a training flight
It WILL return to you and you'll smile with heart's delight

------------------
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
