Beautiful Butterfly - Poem by Pierre Richard Raymond

Beautiful butterfly, fly while you can.
Fly across my happiness and anguish.
Fly in my beloved darken sky and unfold
The reluctant clouds of my inspiration.
Fly around me as to shuffle my despair
While awaiting patiently for you to perch
At the climax of my heart surrounded
By the warmth of your trust and faith.
As you might know, life is a straight road
With so many unexpected curves within.
When we take for granted its smoothness
It surprises us with sudden detours.
However, if one has what it takes to love
And be loved, confusion, doubt, and remorse
Have no place in a tender and loving heart.
