In the very beginning
God made man so pure.
He could not spend life alone,
This God knew for sure.

Bone of his bones,
From the rib near his heart.
Flesh of his flesh,
Joined never to part.

God's perfect plan
For husband and wife.
Sewn together in love,
Hearts together for life.

No needle and thread
Could sew a bond this strong.
Only the God of heaven
Makes them perfectly belong.

The thread in this seam,
Is the face of the King,
Stitching the purest love,
In which their hearts sing.

The needle so sharp,
Sewing one from the two
Pierces heart and soul,
And binds me to you.

Through sewing so perfect,
No stitch can be seen.
It's a match made in heaven,
With unbreakable seams.

The master Tailor so carefully
Can take two incomplete hearts
And beautifully stitch them
Into a true work of art.

His greatest creation
Made in His image to love,
The family established
Children sent from above.

Each moment new patches
Are to the heart sewn,
And the stitches are strengthened
With how deeply love's grown.

God's constantly sewing,
Joining two hearts as one.
With so many in love,
His work's never done.

What a lovely way to use this week's topic! Nice poetry, with a very sweet message.

I thought the analogy was a bit weak in the fifth stanza, but very strong everywhere else.

This is a wonderful poem threaded with creativity! I noticed several stanzas were off in the meter, but your rhyming skills are wonderful. I enjoyed reading it! Keep writing poetry. Blessings, Jo

I like the idea of sewing two hearts in marriage. Very creative.

The third stanza is my favorite. I love the idea you have used throughout of God sewing us together in marriage. Beautiful!

This is very nice. It's tender, and I like the thought they we are sewn together in marriage.

Great way to picture a truth. Good job. If you wanted to edit a bit more you could clean up some of the off meter stanzas.
I enjoyed this! Thanks.
