A Patchwork Quilt by Zenia Sheikh

One of my hobbies is quilting so this poem holds special meaning for me.


A PATCHWORK QUILT

By Zenia Sheikh

Made up of memories of you
Bound together with love
Sewn with your selfless giving
Threads made of grace
Lined with thoughts of you.

Squares made of days gone by
Days we spent together
Each with a new design
Of the things that we shared.

Blanket stitches of our hearts
Mingle the squares in rows
Nothing can tear it apart
Not fire or flood or anything close.

It’s kept in a place of my keeping
The treasure chest of my heart
Wrapped in tissue of forgiveness
And tied with ribbons of love.

The colors all speak of you
Pinks and blues and other hues
Sewn tight and fastened together
With hope and faith and truth…
