Feather for the hero

.

When steel and flesh cruelly met

Then echoed off a single cry,

And, from this live tragedy’s set,

Unseen from all, hidden in light,

Flew off a silver butterfly

Into the blue sky taking flight.

Symbol of love, symbol of hope,

What means this mysterious trope?

A single last word of farewell

From a lone heart to another,

Born from the most powerful spell

Second only to a mother.
