Poems That Inspire
~You Are My Butterfly~ Tanja Cilia
You Are……… My Butterfly
You brought color to my life….
You helped me to select the sweet from the bitter
And savor the moment.
You showed me how to take things lightly You helped me soar above
You helped me spread my wings And notice the flowers.
You are my butterfly, and I love you. You showed me it’s true that if
You chase a butterfly, away he flies;
But if you sit still, he brushes your cheek With his wings and changes the Monochrome vistas of grey
Into a suffusion of color.
Never were poppies so crimson Or daffodils so yellow
Green apples and honey
Mint and licorice and ginger, and Stamens of the honeysuckle
Were never so real. You are my butterfly.
Diving into the cool water Feeling the warmth of a puppy Touching an empty cocoon Listening to the rain
Seeing the sunset
Hearing the rustle of leaves
Were never so aesthetic and sensual As they have become since I
For you are
You are my inspiration, the love of My Life.
