Butterfly - Poem by Robert Green

Elusive as a butterfly
In your voice I hear you sigh
The beat of it's wings
Your voice to me it sings

Elusive as a butterfly
I listern for your cry
A lady like laugh
It comes from your heart

Elusive as a butterfly
It's time for you to fly
This time it's my mournful sigh
And to my eye, a tear to cry.
