Butterfly, butterfly where do you go
Iíve seen you before in dreams of old,
Capturing, holding feelings so true
Loving every moment that I share with you.

Searching, looking, wandering for you
Deep in the mist of this night so blue,
Stars that twinkle before us so bright
Holding on to this love with all my might.

So butterfly, butterfly come out to play
I know that you are hurting and inside you are sad,
But in my heart youíll endlessly stay
Iíll love you for always, forever and a day.

I have read this several times and overall I like the images it potrays and many of the phrases you use but I feel there is something which isnt quite right and I cant quite put my finger on it it is probably the rhythm in lines one and two and lines 9 and 10.

in line 4 it may work better if you replaced 'every' with 'the' and made moment moments.

in line 8 aand 12 again you loose the metre a little

take care david
