For the Love of a Dandelion
favorite flower is the Dandelion,
yellow, round like the sun.
I'd cry and cry when Dad chopped them down-
then he'd go get that WD-40 gun!
Up they would pop again, much to his dismay,
acres and acres
sunning in full array!
I lived between two tall trees,
dripping with Dandelion chains...
on my wrist, a crown for my head,
laying in Dandelions, better than my
own feather bed!
The Dandelions hugged and kissed me,
and as I rolled, they became ever so bold!
Covered with Dandelion
dust from head to toe,
covered with Dandelion gold.
The love of the Dandelion,
will never let you forget.
you mow them down or WD 40 them,
Dandelions will never turncoat and run.
For they love you with the
love of God's own Son.
The years go by quickly now, I barley
fit between those two tall trees.
One day the Blessed Mother reached down
with a Rosary and said, “Child, if you please,
here's another kind of Dandelion chain
since you love to play. The time has come
that you must learn to pray.”
Whether I've been WD 40'ed or mowed down
yellow, pink or green, my prayer remains
please pop me up again! Please forgive me
for all the wrong I've done. Forgive
and love me
through the Mercy of your Son.”
I have an angel that's kinda lazy, that's why
God matched him up with me.
I've had to beg and coax him to carry Dandelions to
God's Mansion you see.
As feast days came and feast days went, off he'd go-flying
soon return smiling, his wing hardly in a sweat.
I'd warn him closely, “We're gonna face Jesus some day. Those
Courts need to be formally dressed.”
Why did God give me this angelic pest? Where is that
dreamy little angel? Did
God tell him when my
time is near? I too, must die—It's the only
way up—I hear.
Dandelion Heaven, Dandelion Earth
Dandelions just the same-if you have the Heart
of a Dandelion!
You don't care if your mowed
down, chopped up, turn yellow, pink or green!
All it takes is the wink of God's eye, and a
soft summer breeze...and up you will pop!
Laughing with your angel, tickled pink,
to be pink, yellow or green!
For it is Jesus Christ in Heaven,
Jesus Christ on Earth,
Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, that
really pops up and sets us free!
In the end, three things shall
Faith, Hope and Love and I say
