Superglue

Many, many songs ago

you gave me your heart

and like a naughty child,

I snipped it up,

threw it on the floor.

 

Forgive me, for I was young,

Selfish

Chose moments in the sunshine

over waiting for rainbows.

 

But many, many songs have come and gone;

See this weariness upon my shoulders

the little lines around my mouth?

 

I have learnt to value what I’m given

appreciate the rainbows

that make the clouds worthwhile

 

Come back, and we can

stick your heart together again

 

I’ll bring the glue.
