I don’t know where they came from,
I wonder whether they existed ever before I met you.
They shake me so violently
That I fear my heart will wither away…
They put my tender heart into tantrums sometimes
They give me absolute joy of innocence,
They remind me that I am alive
They nearly kill me each time they fly.
I pray to you, do not take away these butterflies
For I love them so dearly.
But these butterflies… they do not know that
They are not wanted anywhere except by me!!
