Camberwell Butterfly

T Jackson

 

 

You were cocooned for so long,

Now you emerge into the day.

 

You spread your wings the first time,

And you fly up and fly away.

 

I will follow you,

I will see you come alive.

 

You’re flying further out of reach,

My wings are tired and I touch down.

 

I watch you flutter out of sight,

You don’t even stop to look around.

 

I will follow you,

I will see you come alive.
