A smile and a butterfly

It’s been said,

“A smile is like a butterfly.”

And I think I know why.

On any occasion,
regardless of the situation,
a butterfly can appear.
Not uttering a word,
it travels the world
without fear.

A smile, like a butterfly,
shouldn’t need a reason as to why
it can’t be shared.
No matter the color,
age, race, or gender,
for that brief moment—
someone cared.

As fragile as it may be,

a smile and a butterfly

are gentle reminders to be happy.
