They say that butterflies are free
to roam and wander
only to return to their birthplace.

As the butterfly is free,
so too are we
Free to roam and wander in spirit
Only to return to each other
For you are my birthplace, and I yours.

And our hearts are linked eternally
Bound by love, freed by love

Our linked spirits may rise
free as the butterfly
To explore life and all of its offerings
Together, forever.
