 Reflections of My Heart

The Dandelion

The Dandelion

 Life takes in a breath
then it's forcefully blown
The little fairies are cast out
with no will of their own

Not knowing where the wind will lead
Not really caring the destination
its all about survival
and self preservation

They drift ... They float
and when almost touching ground
then comes another of life's wind
and off they go without a sound

What is their purpose
in life as they go
Why at day's end
they've nothing to show

What is their purpose of existence
What is the point of their life
When each night and day
is filled with loneliness and strife

There is no reward
There is no place to set down
Never knowing top from bottom
when their world stays upside-down

In the dark of night
you think they could rest
but this is the time
of their hardest test

They float off to foreign spaces
no want of tomorrow to see
The dandelion in true life
is the self image of me

ღ God asked me how long
I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
