Sew Me Up


Select your cloth carefully.

A fine brocade.

Lined with smooth satin,

So as not to abrade.


Style it with a flair,

But not too absurd.

Make a statement,

Without saying a word.


Select thread of the right size,

Strength, and color of hue.

To hold the pieces together,

But stay out of view. 


Unless the stitch itself is the thing.

Then boldly go forth,

And lay a thread pattern,

Of strength and worth.


Lay down your stitches,

Straight and true.

The love that you put in,

Will show through. 


Fit it carefully.

Fit it to me.

Sew me up.

Just for thee.
