Butterfly Wishes

Yesterday a butterfly

Came floating gently through the sky.

He soared up through the atmosphere

Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, “I’d love to fly with you

And sail around the way you do.

It looks like it would be such fun

To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm.

I haven’t wings, just these two arms.

I’ve been designed to walk around.

My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me

and told me what his wish would be.

He said, “What I’d love most to do

Is walk upon God’s Earth with you,

To squish it’s mud between my toes

Or touch my finger to my nose.

I’d love just once to walk around

With human feet to touch the ground,

But I have not two legs that swing,

I haven’t arms, just these two wings.”

And so we went our separate ways

In wonder and surprise.

For we’d both seen God’s precious gifts

Through someone else’s eyes.
