When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It's easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imagined I could Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open my hands And watch you rise

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be

So spread your wings and fly Butterfly
I have learned that beauty Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridled
Or their spirit dies
You have given me the courage
To be all that I can
And truly feel your heart will
Lead you back to me when you're ready to land

I can't pretend these tears
Aren't overflowing steadily
I can't prevent this hurt from
Almost overtaking me
But I will stand and say goodbye
For you'll never be mine
Until you know the way it feels to fly
- from Butterfly by Mariah Carey

Isn't this what love is all about? You don't have to keep on chasing it and keep it in a glass jar thinking that it will be your's until the end of time. For love seeks freedom to do other things. Without this, your butterfly will look for ways to escape from your glass jar and chances are, he will not come back again.

As what a friend told me once, If u want to catch a butterfly, don't run after it...instead sit down & open your hand. It will just land on your palm when it needs to rest..that's the best way to find Love!!
