A Patchwork Quilt of Words

I sew bright scraps of words

Binding them together

With the threads of memories,

Hope for the future,

And handfuls of love.


So that whatever comes

You will be comforted

Beneath this quilted heirloom

Of words and wishes

Held lovingly safe

Here in my heart.

  1. I love this, Sammi. I used to make patchwork quilts from leftover fabric (I was always making my kids’ and my own clothes, back in the day) And I’d look at the quilt and the memories would flow, keeping us warm on cold winter nights
