Incomplete Portrait of a Butterfly

Ah, life. Isn't it a funny thing?
So hard to put to words –
And harder still to capture in a single frame.
It's messy, imperfect,
Sometimes broken,
Always unfinished;
To some it's beautiful,
To others it could use some work.
It's filled with love and care and hard work
(A little last-minute craziness sometimes)
And, of course,
Friendship.
That which provides hope and laughter
And beauty
In an often difficult world.
That which gives you wings
And guides you gently through
Your flight of life.
With fragile wings to lift you
And half a page to finish filling in,
You will fall and you will break,
But you will get back up,
And you will fix it up,
And you will complete your masterpiece.
