Unlock my heart,
with damage endured,
never dulling your spirit,
You let me near,
I take a look.
Tender butterfly, I am touched.
Determination to carry on,
flutters the day long.
Beauty visits and disappears,
wounded, but not impaired.
Teaching much, my winged friend.
Bringing light and hope,
lessening human care to perfect.
Tender heart, smiles appear.
Understanding your twisted tale,
seeing the fight of survival’s race.
Moving on, head held high.
Fearless like a butterfly with a tear.
