A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam ...
and for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world ...
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.
Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it, the more it will
elude you. But if you turn your attention
to other things, it comes softly and
sits on your shoulder.
