"BUTTERFLIES"

.

I'm like a cloud full of lightning,

I know I can be frightening,

But you stay.

I don't know what to say.

You're like a sun glowing brightly,

And I want to hold on so tightly

To your hand.

Without you, I could not stand.

You look past all my flaws

Even though I am a lost cause.

You speak to me kindly

As I stumble through my life blindly.

All the butterflies in my heart

Flutter when I catch your eye—

Filled with anxiety,

Overflowing with intensity.

All the butterflies in my heart

Scatter across the vast sky,

Brimming with utmost grace

Seeing your face.

.

As long as I can be around you,

I always know what I can do.

You're too good.

I hope that's understood.

As long as I can hear you speak,

I don't ever feel at all weak.

I endure,

All because of you for sure.

You make me feel alive.

You help me to survive.

I love you so dearly,

But I can never say it clearly.

All the butterflies in my heart

Rustle when I hear your voice,

Soaring through a madness

As they chase after that happiness.

All the butterflies in my heart

Swarm because you are my choice.

I'm certain they can see

We're meant to be.

.

Of the memories in my heart,

The most precious are your grin,

Your laughter, and your words,

The first day you stepped into my world.

Of the memories in my heart,

Destined to fade in the wind,

You will always remain

Even through rain.

All the butterflies in my heart

Scramble when you hold me tight.

They all beat like a drum.

They waited long for this day to come.

All the butterflies in my heart

Guide me to you through dark nights

I'm certain that they know

I love you so.
