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 colourful,
For the world to see.....
We will share sunshine and rainbows,
Somtimes, the rain and 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....
