Blanket DNA

Picking compulsively at his beloved blanket, Mathew leaves these microscopic skeins of fabric everywhere. He and Nicky have dubbed them “blanket DNA.”

    From the day that you were born;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    From the blankies that kept you warm;

    picking fuzzies. Tiny fuzzies.

    Throughout the days, feeling secure;

    picking fuzzies. Tons of fuzzies.

    Growing up, feeling strong;

    picking fuzzies. Lots of fuzzies.

    With your friends or all alone;

    picking fuzzies. Lovely fuzzies.

    Love to do it, but don’t tell Mom!

    Picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    Long bus rides, volleyball games;

    picking fuzzies. Comfy fuzzies.

    Watch a movie with your sis;

    Picking fuzzies. Love those fuzzies!

    The Doctors told us you were ill;

    picking fuzzies! Picking fuzzies!

    You went to the hospital to get your treatment;

    picking fuzzies. Fuzzy fuzzies.

    Eventually you lost your hair;

    picking fuzzies. All those fuzzies!

    Heart of gold, staying strong;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    You were tired, it was hard to eat;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    Take your needles, take your pills;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    Chemo, scans, transplant, tests;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    Check your temp, take your meds;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    Take more tests and wait for news;

    picking fuzzies. Picking fuzzies.

    To no avail – your time is near;

    picking fuzzies. Blankey fuzzies.

    I watch you fade and I cry;

    picking fuzzies. Beautiful fuzzies.

    In my dreams I’m filled with joy…

    It’s raining fuzzies! Oh! precious fuzzies!

    If you can’t tell, we call them fuzzies in our family, and my baby sister actually taught me how to make them! Warm, tender memories of Fuzzies, aka Blanket DNA!
