'The threads of Me''

Tailor made, 
And to a specific 
Pattern. He knew exactly what He had in mind with me
Even with multicolored fiber
Sometimes I look back in amazement 
Thinking who would have thought, that the grey He started with would
Recoil and blossom 
Years ago the tears I shed; finally I can see the growth

    Very touching poem, especially the last line. I try to not post any old poems - they are from a part of me well in the past. But I do sometimes rewrite them in a different form. I never used to use form.
