Butterfly by Mariah Carey

This song is also another one of my favorites. It sorta relates to something I am going through now so I wanted to share it.

When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It’s easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imaged 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

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


So flutter through the sky
Spread your wings and fly

    After seeing my car literally flying away today, learning about letting go and thinking alot about my husband i had to repost this today. I think i finally learned my lesson of letting go because sometimes letting go yourself is the best thing to get what u want.
