3. Repair

please, glue back together
it won't be the same
tattered and crumbling
like your childhood security blanket
still means something,
maybe you can forget about the tears
it won't be the same, 
but you'll still have it
it still exists, and
that's all you need

please, glue back together
it'll still be charming
maybe more so
it'll last another 28 years
shiny, bright but broken
it will still keep you warm
it will still bring joy
it will still harbour memories
the longer it lasts, 
the more it will keep warm

please, glue back together
we'll be
better than new
