B u t t e r f l y

From afar I saw it,

Flying with its gorgeous wings

Among the flowers

But when I touch it,

It flew away


The butterfly is just like you,

It’s pretty

You catch my glances,

From the sea of humans

If I hold your hand,

Will you stay?

Will you leave me,

like the butterfly did?



Be with me,

Stay with me,

Because I’m scared

Scared of losing you
