I Wish I Were a Butterfly


I Wish I Were a Butterfly

Dr. J. M. Kelley 

I wish I were a butterfly so that I could fly far, far away.

Where I might be seen for the beautiful creature that I am. 

Somewhere the sun can warm my face, and that warmth reaches my soul.

Free to fly here and there, free to fly everywhere, free to do nothing at all. 

To be lighter than air floating on a breeze. 

Having faith that God has me in His loving arms of care. 

Softly whispering the feelings of my heart. 

Finally, I have made it no longer a restrained caterpillar. 

I am now that beautiful butterfly that you see gliding along the way. 

I am a butterfly and I am free.
