Butterfly Kisses

One day as I knelt on bended knee

I ask the Lord my future what did he see

Was I ready and worthy of a companion in this life

Was there a woman who would love me as a wife


Someone who would love and cherish me

Setting my lonely imprisoned heart free

A river of joy that flows unabated

Knowing my love was accepted and reciprocated


I wasn’t sure if he heard me that day

But I quickly thanked him anyway

It was about six months along

The Lord answered my prayer and song


How was I to know he would send a butterfly

With hugs and kisses to make my heart cry

No sadness but tears of joy and elation

For sending me one of his beautiful creations
