Rose and The Butterfly
Updated: Jun 16
Was it a dream or reality?
Tears rolled down my cheeks
I saw him fly
It couldn’t be just coincidence.
Was he god or an angle?
His flight brought my lost happiness back,
His wings had colors of earth
So divine was he…
Big round black, yes that’s how his eyes were, just so perfect
They all the answers to my questions
I feared hardship, I feared so much
How coward was i…
So magnificent that butterfly was
He had something unique in him
He taught me to live
Which I had forgotten long ago…
I closed my eyes and it sat on my palm
All was so calm
I looked at him
Half with relief and half with fear…
I never wanted to part away with him
He was so full of life
He seemed to be from holy land
Although we were born on same sand.
I was never sure of what I did
But thought to follow my instinct
I shouldn’t have done that!
I wanted him to be with forever.
I closed my fist to capture my love
How could I’ve known that love can’t be captured
If I weren’t a Venus flytrap
How cruel I was…
How could I be so selfish
That too with my selfless butterfly?
I opened my palm to release my love
It flew away through the terrace, I ran after it…
So pure was his heart
It had left its color on my palm
Oh! How lovely my love was,
So humble, so divine it was
He never let a hint drop of his suffering
But came all the way like a fighter
Facing all odds and perhaps many more fly traps
Yet all it showed was love.
I stand in my terrace
And still find him sitting on that yellow rose
He always gives me immense pleasure
My sweet little earthly butterfly!
