Butterfly Carry My Tears (poem)

Updated on September 9, 2013

Oh butterfly won’t you carry my tears

To valley were dreams await to come true

And grant a flower this blessing of dew

A kiss of rainbow as sunshine appears

-

Float in the luster of legend of stars

Let your wings feel what eyes cannot see

And learn why my heart there always will be

In splendors of moments magic of ours

-

A cold bitter season took her away

And left me to ponder rivers of time

Grasping at answers which I cannot climb

But one lasting Joy I shall not betray

-

So butterfly dancing mid the sky

Please take my love these gems of times past by

      I must confess this brought a few tears. Your memories of Joy always makes me sad. God knows our hearts. A grand reunion is on the horizon. Take care my poet friend..

      Your heart beats in the words of your poems.

      I sense an urgency in your message.

      Even your tears paint pictures of Joy.

      There can be no doubt that your reunion will be spectacular.

      She will leave your arms, no more.

      Be patient, Martin, try to be patient.
