Wings of Grace

One day you took me by the hand
alighted softly lifting us into the sky  
startled I inquired about your wings
smilingly you replied I’m a butterfly

Though clearly it could not be true
forever your secrets I’ll safely keep
and I realize I’ve fallen for an angel 
being certain butterflies can’t weep

Carry us both somewhere far away
from this dreamlike sorrowful place
for all I could ever require or desire 
lies neath an angel’s wings of grace
