I saw the butterfly with a torn wing
I tried to help it mend
I saw beauty in a pained-filled thing
When no one seemed to care

Butterfly kisses on my mind
Wondering when this thread will unwind
Unraveling the threads of butterfly wings
Is what I fear, yet love inside me sings
Softer still than the wings of the butterfly
Softer still than a whispered goodbye

So I wove my heart into its frame
And it took some time to heal
So it seems now it remembers my name
It all seems so unreal
So it follows me and caresses me
With wings of blue and gold
Yet I fret that I will crush it unknowingly
Should the truth be told

Butterfly kisses on my mind
Wondering when this thread will unwind
Unraveling the threads of butterfly wings
Is what I fear, yet love inside me sings
Softer still than the wings of the butterfly
Softer still than a whispered goodbye

Surrounded by your wings
Whispers of your love
Listening as your heart sings
It fits almost like a glove
All around me your soft presence glows
So this is love...
