Favorite Quote:
"Whisper a wish to a butterfly, and it will fly up to Heaven and make it come true."

As it flies by
I start to cry
flutter, flutter
by and by
it passes my window
a thousand times
I wonder why it can fly
with sadness across the sky
from willows swaying in the wind
to flowers as they bloom again
I wonder why I cried and cried
as the blue butterfly flew by
