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.
