My whole life can be summed up in a teaspoon

Life said," Build a boat!", it provided a chunk of wood and one tool, a teaspoon,
I knew I was deafeated before I had begun, so I stayed marooned.
Life placed me amid a wildfire, handed me some water in a teaspoon,
Life said," Fight fire or die!", as I threw the water I was totally consumed.
Life said," Create a symphony", then handed me a teaspoon,
So in utter desperation, I staggered out into the darkness and mournfully howled at the moon.

It would take a mighty big teaspoon to collect
all your delightful talent, dear Sweet Comfort.
I hope you're having a great holiday season.
