Purple World

Butterflies flying so free
In their purple world
A brief moment of life
Too beautiful to last

All that we may see
Of their purple world
Is the flapping wings
That fade too fast

A caterpillar may dream
Of this purple world
Before their future
Becomes the past

Butterflies never see
Their purple world
Is more than we can bear
Too beautiful to last
