Thought patches sewn into a quilt

to warm away the cold,

dreams of stray thoughts, sin and guilt,

lace of life takes hold.


The mind the true and trusted sage

that causes thoughts to bend,

to touch upon a gilded age,

weave of mortal end.


A blanket born of toil and strife

is thrown upon the sands,

covered by the steps of life

and lifted in our hands.


I woke unto this quilt of night

and felt its threading break.

Love was lost within its sight.

I felt its tearing ache.


I shook it gentle in the breeze

to cleanse it as before.

No more patches such as these

that lie upon the floor.


Once again through naked screen,

closing eyes to rest,

I dream of sunlight on the green

to ease my aching breast.


Folded edges of slumber sky,

the dream quilt pure and white.

Here beneath it sleeping lie,

I dream of you this night.
