The Butterfly

Am I the reason why?
Did I really hurt you that much?
We fought so much, I wished you'd go away
Now I wish you would answer me

Was it because I disappointed you?
Did you despise me so much?
I wonder if you can hear me
I wonder if you’d answer if you did

I didn’t get to say I’m sorry
I hope I get the chance some day
I hope you can see this is for you
Do you ever laugh like you did?

I see you every night in my dreams
But instead of you being dead, it’s me
It’s painful when I’m there….
I hope it isn't for you

I’m so sorry for what I did
One day I hope to atone for all my sins
Sometimes I doubt I’m worth saving though
But while you play chess with God… maybe put in a good word for me?

I hope that you are happy there
Some day I hope to visit too
I’ve loved and hated you at the same time
Now I just miss you and hope you’re a star in our sky

I’m sure where you are it rains diamonds
But it was too early and it was my fault that you died
Grandfather, one day I hope to ask you for forgiveness
You’re the Butterfly I’ve been dedicated to all this time
