I wish I was a butterfly with legs

The world stands still

But still I tremble

I try to hide as the crowd passes by

Hoping no one looks

Hoping no one stares

I look in wonder as each person moves

I see them sit

I see them walk

Like butterflies with legs

Oh how I wish I was a butterfly with legs

But I’m not

I just tremble like a lost and fallen leaf in the fall

Moving as the wind takes me

Hoping no one sees

Hoping no one notices

But today

Someone did look

Someone did stare

I was so scared

What were they thinking?

I’m no butterfly with legs

I’m just a lost and fallen leaf

But today

Someone did see me

Someone did notice me


That someone smiled at me.
