Emergence of the Butterfly

The fall of autumn sends you north
Brand new as the scenery behind
Still I keep you close to me
Blind to all the changes deep inside

Changes deep inside

I watched you spin your cocoon
Weathering the seasons and the storms
Remained the branch that you clung to
As you took to changing forms

Discard the shelter of the shell
That held you safely through the change
Ready now to take to flight
Knowing that you'll never be the same

Never be the same

I watched you spin your cocoon
Weathering the seasons and the storms
Remained the branch that you clung to
As you took to changing forms
Now emerge and spread your wings
Fly away and leave me here behind
Leave me here behind
My emerging butterfly

Atop your wings of orange and blue
So freely in the clouds you soar
You are beautiful now
But you were beautiful before

You were beautiful before
