I Will Rip Their Wings
by Amber Rose Granger

Butterflies fluttered past me,
Their water colored wings flowing with the wind,
I wanted to reach out and tear each one of their wings apart,
They had taken Mommy away,
Daddy had told me that the butterflies took Mommy to Heaven,
I wanted my revenge today,
I wanted them to bring Mommy home,
Daddy told me to only wish they could,
Each butterfly I see, I will rip their wings and burn them,
I will rip and burn until they bring Mommy back.
