I once fell in love with a dandelion


Dandelion

I once fell in love with a dandelion.

She was the sight of perfection.

Standing alone,

In the middle of nowhere and anywhere,

Looking at the sun, Smiling,

Dancing in the breeze.

She stood alone,

She always stood alone.

I once fell in love with a dandelion.

I loved her so much that,

I forgot who she was.

I forgot that she rose out of the ground alone,

I forgot that she stood against the odds alone.

I forgot that I had to be the sun to do the tango with her.

She turned from the yellow to the beautiful puff of seeds,

Along came the wind and she sends away her children, one by one.

And crumbled to the ground to become the soil for her children.

I once fell in love with a dandelion,

And I asked her to stay yellow and pretty forever,

She loved the sun and the breeze,

She also loved the purpose she was born with,

There came a time when she had to become the seeds for her children.

I once fell in love with a dandelion.
