Yesterday a butterflyCame floating gently through the sky.He soared up through the atmosphereThen drifted close enough to hear.
I said, “I’d love to fly with youAnd 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 meand told me what his wish would be.
He said, “What I’d love most to doIs 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 waysIn wonder and surprise.For we’d both seen God’s precious gifts
Through someone else’s eyes.
(see… like I said, if you grow it they will come!)
