In a field of yellow flowers,
underneath the sun,
bluest eyes that spark with lightning,
boy with shoes undone.

He is young,
so full of hope,
reveling in tiny dreams,
filling up his arms with flowers,
right for giving any queen.

Running to her beaming bright,
while cradling his prize.
A flickering of yellow light,
within his mother's eyes.

She holds them to her heart,
keeping them where they'll be safe,
clasped within her very marrow,
dandelions in a vase.

She sees love, where
anyone else would see weeds.
All hope is found.
Here is everything he needs.

Fathomless your endless mercy,
weight I could not lift.
Where do I fit in this puzzle,
what good are these gifts?
Not a martyr or a saint,
scarcely can I struggle through.
All that I have ever wanted
was to give my best to you.

Lord, search my heart,
create in me something clean.
Dandelions
you see flowers in these weeds.

Gently lifting hands to heaven,
softened by the sweetest hush,
a Father sings over his children,
loving them so very much.

More than words could warrant,
deeper than the darkest blue,
more than sacrifice could merit,
Lord, I give my heart to you.

    General CommentWhen a kid goes and picks dandilion for his mother its because he loves he and thats all he can give.

    A dandilion is a weed but a mother puts them in a vase a delights in them because her son gave them to her out of love.

    This is a metaphor for God loving our gifts to him no matter how bad they are. That we dont have anything to give better than a dandilion but God will still proudly hold them in a vase.

    General CommentReese Roper is such a genious when it comes to writing songs. When i met him once at a festival he acted like a goofball, it was great. He also does some crazy stuff on stage. But when it comes to writing songs, he ain't no joke. Rock
