Dear Caterpillar

Dear Caterpillar

A Poem by Johans Bill

Dear Caterpillar

You consume me
For plenty times
I've faded away
Long as it fills you
I am but content
I’m just holes, bruises
Yet everything is yours
I have no reservations
But came your seclusion
By the very threads
You yourself have sewn
I let you hang on to me
Your last attempt to stay
and I cherished every moment
Carefully Watched over you
My pupae, won't let you sway
But as your metamorphosis dawn
and when it finally came
and you flew to the horizon
Away the tree of our lives
I have long surrendered hope
For any real chance to catch up
Should I cut myself off?
Submit to uncertain wind waves?
Hoping to magically float towards
The direction where you flown?
I am almost tempted to fall
To chase after your new found wings
But no delusions, nothing I can do
Will ever make me colorful as flower
We are just not meant anymore
So I decided to remain grafted
Embracing the roots that nourished me
Having faith, even without you
I'll be made whole again
