And stars across the sky



But nothing ever made her wish



Until the butterfly





She whispered her desire



Then locked it in a jar



Now confined in a lonely glass



It wouldn't fly so far





Only hours later,



Her greatest wish came true



To meet someone who understood



Like no one she ever knew 





He had all her same desires



To roam the world at will



To find a place where he belonged



To be content when still





For four more nights



And five less lonely days,



Her greatest friend she'd ever had



In the city stayed





As time went on the butterfly



Stayed forgotten and alone



It slowly began fading away



Whispering wishes of its own





On the fifth day



As it turned gently into night



He told her he was leaving



To continue chasing life





As he boarded the train to leave again



Tears fell from her eyes



She ran into her room



Where she kept the butterfly





Vanishing into dust,...
