Dust in the Wind

by Maple Tree   Jun 20, 2017

Pieces of me
fall to the floor,
sweep me to the side;
discard my soul





Kansas wrote a song
for me,
"dust in the wind"
and I sang it's melody
to the tune of every
tear drop that escaped
from within .....

There is always that one song
that you feel was written for you-
I left Kansas the day I stopped singing;

because nobody listened...

    You left Kansas so you could dance and sing again before it was forever silenced.
