The Quilt


Our friendship is like

A patchwork quilt

Made with squares

Of wool and silk.

Colorful patches sewn

With much love and care,

The design tells the story

Of a close friendship there.

The squares of wool

Show the rough times past.

The silk are the happy and smooth

Memories held with thread sewn fast.

The design of our lives

In this pattern take form

Revealing the tears

And the sun after the storm.

Our patchwork quilt

We do lovingly tend,

For itís the story of a friendship

That will never end.

For my dear friend Lora,

With love, Dottie

Thank you my dear forever  friend.

I love you SO much
