Butterflys and Stars
He smiles at the sight of a star,
laughs at the sight of the sky.
But why does he cry while he spies on a rose,
or cringe at the sight of a crown.
She smiles at the sight of a flower,
dances while she spies pretty wings.
But why does she cry when she sees a blue sky,
or feel sorrow when she hears a short song.
They both lost a friend of importance,
they both saw them float to the sky.
They both know they’re safe when they smile.
They both laugh when they see life restor’d.
