On Butterfly Wings

I touched your shoulder and said hi

Then everything changed

You were not as I expected

But exactly what I needed

From the moment you took my hand

The butterflies began to flutter

And they woke up something in me

Something I thought was dead

I found hope when I found you

And I will forever be grateful

You brought love back into my life

And made me feel worthwhile again

Butterflies Never Leave

Don’t clutter up my mind

With the facts of yesterday

I want to move forward

With what my heart is telling me

You were good for me

And I think I was good for you

Why can’t we be us again

Forget the reasons it was over

Embrace the love that never left

My heart still wants you

It may be full of butterflies

But they only want to fly to you
