The Butterfly Flutters By

Just when the weight on my shoulders feels heaviest; Just when my world of problems is making me cry; Just when the crazies around me are at their craziest … … the butterfly flutters by. Just when I reach the end of the rope I hang onto; Just when I am ready to ask the Good Lord, “Why?”; Just when my head is about to split in two … … the butterfly flutters by. And suddenly, the weight is less heavy; No tears do I need to cry; The crazies regain their sanity … … and the butterfly winks an eye. The rope is my salvation; The Good Lord gives His reply; My head is in one piece again … sing praise to the butterfly.
