Because A Sweater Is Simply The Emotions And Warmth That You Wear!

What we thought is a sweater is actually not just a sweater. It is a series of emotions, love and warmth knitted together for you!

What we thought is a sweater
Is actually the legacy bearer
From one generation to the other
From the brother to the sister to their children.
A legacy of emotions and moments
To share with the generation to come.
Many would find it futile but come to think it’s worth the while.

What we thought is a sweater,
Is actually a barometer to know someone
to know their thoughts their gesture
Which makes the whole connection to the heart so much better.

What we thought is a sweater
Is actually the love of a mother
the indulgence of a father.
The values of the grandparents
And so much more for the wearer

What we thought is a sweater
Is actually not just a sweater
It’s actually the caretaker in the absence of your creator
It’s actually the giver when the weaver is gone
It actually is not just a sweater
But a series of emotions knitted together.

A version of this was earlier published here.
