Thoughts for tomorrow

I saw a butterfly lying on its side
I watched the leaves to turn to gold
I wondered why some things must end
I wonder where the summer goes

I thought about that butterfly
The amazing sights her journey revealed
I pondered if in she planned ahead
For the adventures still concealed

Of friendships made and sometimes ended
Love once lost and hearts on the mend
Was the journey worth her pain
To leave behind family and friends

As she fluttered her wings now slowly
Her story and trials shared with me
I saw the rare beauty she possessed
And the splendor she had freed

I know now that she has no regrets
I know her journey now is mine
I saw a butterfly lying on its side
And a tear fell from my eye
