    I've missed it

    I believe I've missed it
    while sewing patches to my heart
    a single tulip by the window
    if only I hadn't sailed too far out
    I thought these birds can fly for miles
    scarcely held up during a gravity pull
    somebody suffers from these smiles
    when they cover up too much soul
    slipping by barely noticed by thieves
    attached somehow to miserable dust
    would this flower stand so tall
    in a dead of winter's snowy crust
    but I believe I've missed it
    too much sound shook light apart
    I didn't see this beautiful gift
    while sewing patches to my heart

    I fear I'm incredibly dense and/or insensitive; I believe I've missed about half of it. I must re-read it till I get it. I like your format. Cool idea! And more good writes in the future.

    Perfect 10! You did not miss it with this poem. This is great!

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
