we all have a butterfly

We all have a butterfly
that takes the form
of beauty through our eyes

They are all different
and come in many shapes, sizes, and colors
those of which we have never seen
and never shall
for we cannot see
these butterflies we have

So what is their purpose?
always following as we lead
watching and observing never leaving
waiting for an event that may not occur

This event I speak of is not rare
but it still may not happen
for the event is not planned
nor is it random

When it occurs
time will stop
but only for a moment

As two butterflies switch owners
and assume the form of their new masters
then meld with them
to become one

And we follow our old butterflies
as they lead us to our true loves
who we see
as beauty through our eyes
