FRAGILE AS A BUTTERFLY:
(I wrote this for my book
"Written From The Heart")
As fragile as a butterfly,
That's the beat of my heart.
It's been that way
Since we had to part.
As fragile as a butterfly
My confidence took a nose dive.
It took some time to retain it,
Today I feel so alive.
I don't take life or people for granted,
I treat them with respect.
For they too are fragile as butterflies
That's what I've come to accept.
People who thry to make decisions for me
Are way out of their league.
I am what I am,
That's what I believe.
To those who do not know me,
I'm honest and wouldn't hurt a fly.
To myself I'm always true.
Positive but fragile as a butterfly.
