The Quiet Butterfly
The Quiet Butterfly,
Was All Alone,
Sitting in Her Cocoon,
As She had Grown,
She was Fed Up,
She wanted to be Free!
As She Fought,
She Finally Said,
'I'm All Alone,
I want to be Dead',
She Fought And Fought,
Trying to get Past the Walls,
Trying to get away!
But then there was a Whisper,
A little Voice to be heard,
' Don't give Up,
I'll help you! '
But then that Tiny Whisper,
Grew and Grew,
until Finally The Butterfly Flew!
Then one day the Butterfly said,
' I love you,
Can't you see,
You are the one for me! '
The Whisper Grew and Grew,
That Little Whisper Came out of its Cocoon,
The Butterfly's Whisper Said,
' But Will You Love me,
Until your Dead? '
The Butterfly said,
' Of Course! ,
Until I'm Dead! '
The Butterflies Smiled,
As they thought,
' That'll be Awhile '
