LIFE'S PATTERN, by            
First Line: I wove a pattern for my life
Last Line: Grey threads of pain.
Subject(s): Grief; Life; Strength; Sorrow; Sadness

I wove a pattern for my life: --
Each day shall hold
Shining bits of happiness,
Rose hues of gladness
Shall glimmer in each fold.

I'll share the burdens of others,
I'll comfort the sick and old;
Thus into the cloth of my happiness,
I'll weave a thread of gold.

But no sorrow shall ever touch me,
As into my life I weave
This glorious pattern of happiness,
This pattern of rose and gold.

God looked down on the fabric bright,
"'Tis a beautiful pattern, frail and light,
But it lacks of strength."
Then into the fabric He gravely wove
Grey threads of pain.
