~Lessons Of A Butterfly~
Can you hold a butterfly in your heart ...
and still open your palms to set it free.
Can you hold the hand of a fallen angel ...
then by healed wings ... let him fly to eternity.
Can you kiss the sweet lips of ~Fate~ ...
can you dance with ~Destiny.~
Can you build a bridge of ~Love~ ....
can you ~Love~ unconditionally.
Can you forgive the unforgivable ...
can you see with understanding eyes.
Can you keep sorrow's secrets ...
can you hear a lost child's cries.
Can you honor a heart's golden promise ...
can you hear the words unspoken.
Can you write the rhymes to heal ...
can you mend a heart and soul once broken.
Can you close your tired eyes ...
and still help another see the light.
Can you light their path with love ...
and illuminate their darkest night.
Can you whisper in the wind ...
can you hear the echoes of love ...
Can you hear this prayer ...
can you allow your heart to rise above.
I have loved a ~Butterfly~ ...
and instead it set ~Me~ free.
I have been held in the wings of an ~Angel~ ...
and been kissed by ~Fate~ & ~Destiny~
~Butterflies Are Meant To Be Free~
When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It's easy to succumb to overwhemling fears inside
Blindly I imagined I could
Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you, I must open up my hands
And watch you rise
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
I have learned that beauty
Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridled
Or their spirit dies
You have given me the courage
To be all that I can
And truly feel your heart will
Lead you back to me when your
Ready to land
I can't pretend these tears
Aren't overflowing steadily
I can't prevent this hurt from
Almost over taking me
But I will stand and say goodbye
For you'll never be mine
Until you know the way it feels to fly
