when you see a dandelion
you see...
a weed that needs to be exterminated
a pest, a nuisance, something in the way
obnoxious, inconvenience,
how many of them did you see today?

i know what you're thinking
i know because that's what i used to see, too
but i've had a change of heart...
let me share it with you

i see...
a dream to come true
and a wish in the making
a moment to cherish
a day free for taking

an idea not quite ripened
and the smile of a child
a dance in the meadow
a reminder to just sit for awhile

i see...
giggles and moments
and promises, too
and letters to be written
from my little heart, to you

The End
