Talking With The Butterflies - Poem by Suzana Mustra

It may seem very strange to you,
But it is something that I really do.

When my heart and soul cries,
I'm talking with the butterflies.

Because I know that it is true,
That one of those butterflies is You.

I always tell them how was my day,
Hoping they will respond in the same way.

Sometimes I tell them about my son,
About my life and things that I've done.

And I won't be sad,
Because I know it's You, Dad!
