My Lovely Butterfly

My beautiful, free butterfly
So glorious in natures embrace
Glistening wings against gentle winds
A wonderful sight in empty space

My precious, innocent butterfly
Dodging God’s sparkling tears
In the distance thunder roars
My dear can you not hear?

My fragile, sweet butterfly
Hide quickly from this brutal rain
Strong gales that mien and tear
I pray that you escape pain

My transparent, bloody butterfly
Please again flutter your golden wings
Do not follow the reapers shadow
So not listen to the angels sing

My quiet lovely butterfly
In this land you are dearly missed
Paradise will never be the same
But I pray you stay in eternal bliss
