On The Wings of A Butterfly

Your friendship is special
Like the flowers that bloom,
Or when a butterfly emerges
From within its cocoon...

You remind me of that butterfly,
Loving and free,
Bright and colorful,
For the world to see...

We will share sunshine and rainbows;
Sometimes, the rain and the snow;
We'll stand together through it,
While the cold winds blow...

When the time is right,
We won't stop to ask "Why?"
Our friendship will take flight
On the wings of a butterfly...

Thank you so much for this wonderfully beautiful poem! I was looking for just the right poem to include with a gift of a butterflys wing to a friend. Our friendship is "taking flight" into romance and this poem was absolutely perfect to include with the special gift. My praise to Corky Ferguson! and thanks again!

This poem is perfect for telling a good friend that they matter. That your friendship is something important that will weather the Storms of life and become somtheing beutiful.
Friendship is like a butterfly..hold it too tight it will be ruined but hold it too loose it will fly away like a butterfly. I like this poem!
I love this poem's use of comparison to a butterfly. It symolizes that friendship does take to the skies...
I think that this poem says so much about friendship and seeing the whole person and being able to rely on the person when you feel like you can't do it alone!!! I think it's wonderful!!!
