This poem was written for someone who was very special to me, It may have cause me pain to let that someone go but I had to do it so he'd be happy.I want him to be truly happy even if that means that I cannot be part of his life anymore. I love him, I loved him so much, and I still do, but I loved him so much that I was willing to let him go so he could live his life, and be loved with the kind of love that he really deserves that I have failed to give. :( He was my bestfriend and that's what bestfriends do, you'd always support your bestfriend. That's the reason behind my username by the way, he has always been the little prince and I was his bestfriend.

“The Caterpillar”

-The Little Prince’s Bestfriend

I was sitting on the grass near a tree one day,

And saw a caterpillar crawling my way

It crawled, crawled and crawled so slow

So I went near, near and near enough to say hello


I picked the caterpillar up and never thought

So much happiness in my life, it had brought

It was my source of strength when times are rough

Makes me laugh so hard, I ended up having a cough


We grow, grow and grow so did our love

We felt infinite, just like the doves above

We worked as a team when problems arise

Knowing that there’s hope in every sunrise


Just when I thought we found a love that was so true

He said fading is the word to describe my love for you

I realized I may have been holding on to it too much

That it felt like I never wanted it to live a life he deserved such


It pained me to set my sweet caterpillar free

But that’s the thing about love, you love selflessly

In a night filled with population and blaring sounds

I could see lights, lights everywhere and around


I caught a glimpse of my caterpillar in the sea of crowd

Who bloomed and was happy, I was so proud

Behind every pain I had to endure on for so long

A smile crept into my lips, the feeling was strong


How far you’ve come, my scared caterpillar before

I wish I could give you a hug so long, just once more

To whisper in your ear the words I want you to know

That seeing you happier, will for me be the best show


Don’t worry my love, I know you’re strong

Don’t think I will not be here, that thought is wrong

Don’t think my love for you ended like a flower that withered

Because I loved you so much, that I willingly surrendered


Fly high my love, opportunities don’t you dare miss

Don’t worry I’ll always be here as pinky promised

I finally see why I had to set my caterpillar free

So it could be the butterfly it deserve to be
