A Thousand Butterflies

Last night
I dreamed

I had
a thousand butterflies
inside my heart,

Effortlessly
they floated
into the vast blue sky,

rising
with a great joy
and lightness.

and all about them
was a sense
of freedom
and celebration.

They were not
weighed down
by unnecessary burdens.

They were not bound
to anyone or anything
they did not love.

Last night,
I dreamed I had
a thousand butterflies

surrounding me
with soft wings
and bright colors.

I felt my burdens lift,
and I followed
their bright wings
to freedom.
