Countless experiences,
a myriad of thoughts,
memories, feelings,
complex yet simple.

Combined from rags;
various textures,
rough, smooth cloth,
distinctly scented.

Tinted temperaments,
diverse actions,
shapes and designs
patterns of a broad life.

Tears of sorrow, regret;
tears of joy, pleasure,
displays a patchwork
compassionately made.

Pricking pins and needles,
threaded with strength,
piece by piece; a sacrifice
behind every strand.

Handmade, homemade
prepared with love,
a complete collage of
life uniquely crafted.

I’ll keep collecting
these sentiments,
I’ll keep sewing
endlessly, forever.
