TODAY I SAW A BUTTERFLY
By Tammy C. Smith

Today I saw a butterfly
in flowers, fleeting softly by

On wings of soft and gentle flight;
I dare to dream someday I might

Know the magic of this gift,
feel the breeze beneath me lift

Up into the flowers' field,
the beauty of Godís earth revealed.

I shall see amazing grace,
a true reflection of His Face.

The warmth of sun will brightly shine
and lead the way until my time

Of flight has ended, now long gone,
back to earth and home sweet home;

And afterward the very sight
of the magic of winged flight,

My mind will soar and heart recall
that all creatures great and small

From the very largest beast
to a butterfly of least,

Each was made with Godís great love:
to walk and swim and fly above.

The human heart and soul and mind,
in their beauty shall we find

Strength within ourselves to be
respectful of all who breathe.

Today I saw a butterfly
in flowers, fleeting softly by.
