If it’s broken
it’s meant to be chucked out.
Then I met you by happenstance.
I was constantly being broken into pieces,
Spent with you, during which you fixed me,
I thought I was just a cheap pottery
Those before you never ever handled with care.
You took the time to pick up the pieces and seam them,
before you were gone
I moved on or at least I pretend.
Maybe you are fixing some other broken pottery somewhere else.
Keep it up. It’s your specialty.
I am forever grateful to my savior, for not ending in the trash.
