– Poem by: Ashley Landry



Butterfly; butterfly fly away, teach me how to be as free as free can be.

Butterfly; butterfly I see you there, its beautiful the way your wings caress the air.

Butterfly; butterfly go as high as you can go, show me the things that I don’t yet know.

Butterfly; butterfly fly into the sky, drop down and land yourself by my side.

Butterfly; butterfly I see you kiss a flower, my eyes fill and I begin to ponder.

Butterfly; butterfly your beauty soars, I see the beauty in you and I see the beauty within me.

Butterfly; butterfly show me the way, For beauty is beautiful but there’s more to me.

Butterfly; butterfly show yourself, I see your colors and I see your shimmer, is there anything else?

Butterfly; butterfly what is the matter? can’t you give me an answer for the questions I desire?

Butterfly; butterfly I see you dying, life is far too short to sit around crying.

Butterfly; butterfly don’t you go, for your goal has not yet been accomplished.

Butterfly; butterfly let me lift you, I peer into your eyes and see that there’s a secret inside.

Butterfly; butterfly let it out, your secret could hold great things, give me the secret to life.

Butterfly; butterfly let me know, before you take your last breath; show me what you hold.

Butterfly; butterfly there you go… You twitch away telling me that the secret to life is having the courage… to just let go.
