Butterflies Of Love - Poem by Gaia Rose

I always will remember the butterflies of love;
They flew to me the very day he sent you from above.
Your sea blue eyes your jet black hair they made me oh so weak,
I went to talk then realised how I couldn’t seem to speak.

Love is unpredictable; it does all kinds of things,
You cannot help but lose your mind waiting for phones to ring.
It stops life as you know it; you seem to lose your way,
To me you did all this and more when you crossed my path that day.

Staying up for hours while you kissed and held me close,
The nights seemed never ending, how I treasured these the most.
Years have passed and butterflies that were once inside have gone,
Doubt and fear seep in and what felt rights now feeling wrong.

You can’t help question feelings that have altered since we met,
Those butterflies…where have they gone? I’m starting to forget.
I thought they’d last forever? I thought they’d never go?
Oh how I wish they would come back those butterflies I know.

Why is it when love falls apart our feelings shift and change?
What once was certain in our hearts now’s hurting once again.
You almost become strangers, passing in the crowd,
The cuddles, kissing and holding hands now seeming not aloud.

So please will someone tell me where those butterflies have gone,
 Why is it love can feel so right then somehow feel so wrong?
They must be out there somewhere; I wish they would come back,
And help me to remember those feelings I now lack.

Did I do something wrong? Or not treat you so good?
If you fly back into my world I’ll love you like I should.
I just need to remember those feelings from the start,
So butterflies of love, please fly back to my heart.
