Precious Dream

Written by: Tahera Mannan

Fly little butterfly
Take on your wings
A drop from my dream
    Fly over the meadows
    Over the cows and horses
    With my dream on your wings
Oh be ever so careful
Don’t let my dream drop
Be careful, oh be so careful
    My dream is very precious
    The hold my whole life
    My tears and my joys
Fly little butterfly
To that lady
In the stars
    She is waiting there
    With her arms unfolded
    Waiting just for you
Go little butterfly
My prayers go with you
My hopes go with you
    Bring me back
    Her smiling face
    Her shining eyes
I’ll wait for you
With my fingers crossed
And my head bowed.
