Where Is The Boy?

Where are all the butterflies that once were?
Where are all the smiles that you had?
Where is the boy that you once were?
Where is the joy that you once had?
For once, you were a boy,
Who had all the smiles in life,
Having fun, full of joy,
Running, and catching butterflies.
You were a joy to see,
Full of bursting energy,
A boy playing with his butterflies,
Caring for nothing but his life.
I long to see the butterflies again,
The boy playing in the field once more,
The smiles in your face again,
Joy fills your life once more,
Where is that boy that you once were?
Where is the joy that you once had?
Where are all the butterflies that once were?
Where are all the smiles that you had?
