A butterfly from my window i see
I take no notice, it's you I need
But you are gone now, resting in your grave
People think what you did was selfish but I think your brave
Dragging myself from my pit
I sigh, breathe and think about what I've got to live
Another day of guilt, another day of sorrow
Another day of living with no hope of you tomorrow
A butterfly landed on my chest, right where my heart is laid to rest
It's wings so beautiful and delicate
This butterfly can't speak but yet so eloquent
A gentle reminder that you are near
A reminder that I need not fear
But I still need your touch
Your voice I miss so much

Powerfully written right from the heart. Searing but still well crafted.

Tragic but beautiful and the butterfly is exquisite:)
