I gazed towards the window
And found a caterpillar crawling,
With eager thoughts in my heart
I kept myself staring.
From where did it come
And what questions does it throw,
I dreamt of the Garden of Eden
As my soul wished to know.
A sparkling day was ahead
After the dark veil,
To transform a crippled life
From dead feelings to real,
I felt a heavenly fragrance
And lit up my somber mind,
A butterfly was in the making
Leaving all the gloom behind.
I expressed my budding joy
With passionate notes on the lip,
As the newborn wings of illumination
Thus brightened the broken ship.
