    Quilt
    By Grace V. Tidrow

    Life is like a patchwork quilt
    put together by time
    part of yours is quilted
    also part of mine.
    The part we quilt together
    will have beauty to behold
    Fashioned with our love that's red
    bound with a band of gold.
    There will be many little patches
    some gray and some blue
    Bu the thread that binds them together
    is the love I have for you.
    So as you pledge your love to me
    and I pledge mine to you
    we'll be safe beneath this quilt of love
    All our whole lives through.
    Heather

    Patchwork Quilt







    Together we make our patchwork quilt of life



    Cotton backing is our hearts and souls



    Thread we use to sew is the strength of our bond



    Pieces of clothe special memories to remain in our sight



    Each cloth has color with a meaning



    White reminding us of our Earth’s beginning



    Brown is for the love of rich soil we work



    Blue for all known oceans, seas, rivers, and streams



    Gray the sky where we watch God’s creatures fly



    Green for the respect of nature’s landscape scenes



    Orange as we love that “Old Man” and his moon



    Purple for tears we shed and pain



    Red for all the love we have made



    Rainbow colors for diversity of our families



    Yellow for the sunrises we have seen



    Our quilt continues to grow only missing one color



    Once our time here is finished this color they will sew



    Black being the finishing piece of our patchwork quilt

    Wow! I hadn't heard of either poem. Will be using one when I make "our" wedding quilt in another year.
