Through Someone Else's Eyes

Yesterday a butterfly 
Came floating gently through the sky. 
He soared up through the atmosphere 
Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, "I'd love to fly with you 
And sail around the way you do. 
It looks like it would be such fun 
To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm. 
I haven't wings, just these two arms. 
I've been designed to walk around. 
My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me 
and told me what his wish would be.

He said, "What I'd love most to do 
Is walk upon God's Earth with you, 
To squish it's mud between my toes 
Or touch my finger to my nose.

I'd love just once to walk around 
With human feet to touch the ground, 
But I have not two legs that swing, 
I haven't arms, just these two wings"

And so we went our separate ways 
In wonder and surprise. 
For we'd both seen God's precious gifts 
Through someone else's eyes.
