About the Poem

My girlfriend of 5 and 1/2 years recently told me that she needed time and space. She said that the sparks were no longer present and that it was too late for me. I am devastated and feel lost and abandoned. Any efforts I make to rekindle the passions are futile. A new man has entered my love's life and I am having great trouble letting go of my feelings of love. (Part of my inspiration for this poem came from the movie Patch Adams)

A Butterfly

A butterfly
is such a beautiful creature,
a myriad display of majestic colours.

But what makes it so magical
is the special grace,
the fluttering gaiety,
the dance from
place to place.

Who am I
to capture a free spirit?

Like a collector
with his butterfly net,
bottling the joy
and celebration of life.

This is not me,
as I have a dream to realize
to be a man who can love,
cherish and nurture the spirit of life.

Living my life,
sharing and helping the one I love,
that true love -
like the dancing butterfly -
will find its place, its home.
