My Thoughts like Butterflies

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


My thoughts like butterflies,

flit from one to another,

reflecting on the last beautiful flowers -

of the summer that's ending.

On the beauty of a clear blue sky

and on as far back as I can remember,

my thoughts like butterflies,

have no end.

There are so many things,

that I can remember,

the good times and the bad -

but none of it makes me sad.

I'm glad that there are memories,

to be treasured

and then my thoughts like butterflies -

settle on you.

I have to smile,

you are the good that is in my life,

the love I longed for,

so my thoughts like butterflies,

will stay with you

and never fly away.

Even as the summers go by,

so many reasons have I,

to collect treasured memories,

like seashells found at the seashore.

So when one-day memories will have to do,

they’ll be in my thoughts like butterflies –

always with you till the end of time.
