    After a long hiatus I am back! I wrote this song as a letter to my hopes of the future, present, and past. What do the butterflies symbolize for you?

    Lyrics:

    Dear butterflies not yet alive,
    oh let me first apologize--
    It's 'cause of me you'll never see a summer rain or cloudless sky.

    Butterflies oh butterflies I'm sorry.
    Butterflies I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.
    I ran out of choices and I knew not what to do.
    I'm so sorry for killing you.

    Dear butterflies who grow and thrive,
    your colors leaping soft as fire--
    the fault is mine you'll never rise up past the trees into the sky.
    I cared for you the best I could:
    a world of flowers leaves and wood,
    and felt I might myself take flight
    when all was calm and all was right.

    Butterflies oh butterflies I'm sorry.
    Butterflies I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.
    You can't live forever when there's dying still to do.
    I'm so sorry for letting you.

    Dear butterflies who've long-since died,
    onto your powdered wings I've cried.
    Just like myself you couldn't help the swift and brutal wind of time.

    Butterflies oh butterflies I'm sorry.
    Butterflies I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.
    Though I can go on without you, it's not what I want to do.
    I'm not sorry for loving you
    and I'm not sorry for needing you...
    but I'm so sorry for killing you. Show less
