My Dear Butterfly

My dear butterfly
Please don't try to fly
No! not this moment in time
Your feathers are still soaked
So stay a bit in my hand
Till your feathers get dry

My dear butterfly
You didn't hear me right
You jumped onto the wet floor….

See ! You still can't fly

I will catch you once again
But not to hurt you!
Please wait and listen
At least until the rain stops falling

My dear butterfly
Why did you fly away from me ?
See, You fell down once again

I want to catch you again
Please stop hurting yourself
But I see you try so hard
Move your broken feathers
Do you still want to fly ?
I wish I could hear you
Then I might have a chance
To bring you where ever you want to go

My dear butterfly
I think I will leave you alone


But Now !

I see the weather out there
Hard Rain! Hard Wind !
And I wonder
Whether you are all right
Or are you still alive !

    Butterfly would say like this.

    I cant stay a bit in your hands.
    now my feathers are getting broken.
    I need a protection forever.
    not a bit love for a while.

    So I'm trying to fly still.
    if impossible,
    its better to die
    than being with your love for a while.

    Before been a rude butterfly,
    You should think twice
    Whether that love is going to be for while
    Or forever
    because you never know and you can't guess
    So give a chance and feel how it is
    Without let it go...

    A very lovely poem with nice wording
    and a deep meaning in it.
