Like A Butterfly

I love…
…that you care enough to give me space to work through things on my own the way I need to. That you are understanding and wise enough to give me room to think brings loving gratitude into my heart.

Credited to both Henry David Thoreau and Nathaniel Hawthorne
is like a butterfly:
the more
you chase it,
the more
it will elude you,
but if you
turn your attention
to other things,
it will come
and sit softly
on your shoulder.
