Sweet butterfly,
Why have you gone away?
You have left me behind,
With no more beauty.

I have called to you,
From a darkened room,
Begged you to come home,
Sharing with me your stories.

But there comes no answer,
From my silent butterfly.
And today I became lonelier
Than ever possible before.

Please tell me the reason,
You took your things and flew away.
If only so I can change,
Never to lose something so lovely again.

I know for us it is too late,
But perhaps if you could just see,
I loved you more than I knew,
And now that you're gone, I am broken.

Sweet butterfly,
You have gone too far away,
And left something far sweeter,
Than you will ever know.
