Butterfly

Following you from a distance
With my gaze
You can't just be lost this way
Like a hawk in the sky watching a prey
I keep you not at bay

Oh my butterfly
Deign me with your perch
Even for just a moment
Flit on me and I would be your nectar
Bestow on me a spasm of love
And restore coolness to my eyes

Savor this moment of your perch
On my captivated nectar
Even if it won't be much longer
You flit on another flower

If I break your wings
And confine you to me
You lose your beauty, so beguiling
But if I leave you in the air
You fly away and leave me in despair

I spend so much time
Admiring your colourful sight
Forgetting you are in the spotlight
Just right before many watchful eyes
You were never meant to be mine
You are just an illusion in this guise
A butterfly in the sky
