Beautiful butterfly


A beautiful butterfly flies high above.
It gracefully emits, warm rays of love.
flies & swings its wings, like a dove.

beautiful colours, it glitters like gold
Sweet, calm, sweet message it holds
Warm, tender it’s lights never grow old.

It opens it wings & makes day brighter.
It sends sweet rays, makes heart lighter.
it breathes love, to make faces softer.

It warmly charms hearts, soul & minds,
cheerful smile, merit in it wing you’ll find.
The purest flush in it’s eyes wink so kind.

There! little girl; don't cry!
