you mend frays and flaws of old worn and weathered jeans
you piece yourself together to create a blanket of warmth
i cover myself with on lonely nights
your spirit protects me
the history you hold, ties together years of lost embraces
your miss matched beauty is so unique
each little bit of remnants left behind, too small to use
become a coat of many colors
an inspiration of so many mothers
you create significance and beauty out of the seemingly useless
you have stolen my heart
and burrowed a nest in my soul
