Like a Firefly

Trapped, held inside
Bottled up like a firefly
Just another treasure
Displayed for all to see

A small little trinket
Some unknown curiosity

Trapped, held inside
Bottled up like a firefly
Just waiting for the lid
To be screwed down tight

A little bauble, owned
Put on a shelf, treasured

Trapped, held inside
Bottled up like a firefly
Watch with curiosity
As her light grows dim

A small oddity, rare
To be displayed, revered

Trapped, held inside
Bottled up like a firefly
Waiting, always hoping
Knowing someone will come

A small treasure, unique
Her heart pure and rare

Trapped, held inside
Bottled up like a firefly
Willing to wait forever
To be freed by his touch
