An informal way of signing off in a letter and showing a measure of affection. A butterfly is associated with fragility and elusiveness.

bye, butterfly


Explanation:
The first answer for inspiration + the second answer for substantiation = this answer for final refinement to, by just using one "bye", get the plaintiveness and slightly melancholy effect that the original evokes.
