Fluttering hearts

    The brightest star will one day die 
    Its light will shine no more
          Even the effervescent butterfly
    Will one day fall to the forest floor
    Ending the flutter of its reign
         Never to rise again

     The love we thought would never end
      Had lost its passion over time
           Now we have become just friends
     With unspoken words we mime

     Our love is like a gypsy that roams the land 
     Moving to the beat of a distant band
           Not having a sense of permanence
    But just a  fleeting presence
    Our hearts now flutter like the wings of a butterfly
          But love's  eternal beat will never die
