Jesus I Trust In You

For the Love of a Dandelion

For the Love of a Dandelion

By Leila

 My 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 of Dandelions

sunning in full array!

I lived between two tall trees,

dripping with Dandelion chains...

one 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.

Whether 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

the same.

God 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 last-

Faith, Hope and Love and I say

Dandelions!
