A wonderful occurrence unfolding in my mind
Slowly it blossoms from the splinters that I find
The tapestry was woven before I was to be
Each fragment of the masterpiece goes with what I see

If sometimes it seems unreal prick me with the pin
That drives through the tapestry until it never ends
I might seem small to me but I know I’m not to you
You’re my God the Great I Am from the first thread I grew

There I am I went by so fast it might ne’er be known
How I loved one woman and all my family’s grown
Paint a happy smile for me on the lil man’s head
Then my story will be told with one single thread

Ah Walt...reading this makes my heart bleed!  Argh!  How beautifully you spun this wonderful little tale - I loved the whole concept of comparing yourself to a single thread!  Fabulous darling, really!  So short, but oh so sweet !  Bravo!  (standing up and applauding loudly!)     
"You're my God...from the first thread I grew..."  'Twas my favorite line, BTW!
