Pieces of Me

The pieces of me have been scattered.
With force thrown to the lonely winds.
You didn't realize! my love mattered.

You say I am guilty I have sinned.
You dismantled me tossed me away.
With force thrown to the lonely winds.

I will be reconstructed one day.
The essence of me won't dissapear.
You dismantled me tossed me away.

Listen close to the winds you will hear.
Songs from the man I strive to be
The essence of me won't dissapear.

Do you recognize the sound of me?
Songs from the man I strive to be.
The pieces of me have been scattered.
You didn't realize! my love mattered.

    I'm sure if pieces of you were ever scattered and rebuilt, you would be stronger than ever before. Excellent write Rick! Hugs ...soupmail.

    The essence of you is just grand, Richard. Throw to the wind whoever made you feel that way! Gone with the wind....

    Good luck in the contest, my man! This is brilliantly written and should do well or there should be an investigation!

    I've been discarded like that a few times in my life. A very nice read.
