When shall the Butterfly Rest?

the butterfly

Hiding in flurries and eddies
a lost soul grieves within
searching for a love lost long ago,
seeking a path she knows has no end

deep within she mourns the love
that broke her heart and stole her soul
in pain and anguish she rides the wind
seeking the sun which set long ago

bound in chains of the past,
living in shadows that never were
she cannot see today’s sunlight,
feel the joys of the flight

for only until she finds today’s sunrise
can she look up
 from the shadows
clutched so deeply in her loss

and rest from her eternal flight
