Beautiful butterfly
Who hovered around me
Why have you left?
Where have you gone?
Rainbow colored wings
Fluttering here and there
Charming, enchanting,
Seductively inviting

Beautiful butterfly,
How I miss you…
Your playful,whimsical,
Adorable ways
Those that entertained
And delighted me
Under the clear,
Pale blue sky of early Spring

Beautiful butterfly,
From time to time
You would come sit
On my shoulder
Softly whispering
Sweet nothings in my ear
Was it just my imagination?
Or did it really occur?

Beautiful butterfly,
The world seems so sad
And lonely without
Your colorful presence
I send out a prayer
To the universe
Humbly asking for
Your long-awaited return.
