There is a quilt upon my bed

With snippets of the life I’ve led

It’s made of patches bright and bold

And meant to save me from the cold.

This quilt has kept me warm for years

It’s shared my dreams, my hopes, my fears

And every piece of fabric sewn

Does have a story of its own !

Blind-stitched it is and all by me

Each patch contains a memory

My hands are old and gnarled a bit

Still they have shaped each square to fit.

I wish these rules would all apply

To life we know before we die

With needle, thread and sharpened shears

We’d patch the world and scrap our tears !
