Faded Dream

ButterflyA butterfly of my youth
You flitted through my life
I followed your beauty
Zig-zag across the field
A laugh
A reach
A grab
You were unattainable

I found you hidden
In a closet of my mind
Drab
Gray
I wonder why
I didn’t persist
Left you uncaught

Can a faded dream
Live again?
Can color come back
To a memory?
When is ‘now’
Too late?

I remember your beauty
And ask
Can it be again?
