Every Piece of My Heart

Once it was whole,
shiny and new.
There were many hands
that it passed through,
never knowing of
its true value.
So it was dropped
and mangled
and at times thrown away.
Each cruel act
breaking off another piece.
I tracked each piece down
and tried to make it anew
but once something’s been broken,
it can never go back.
I know it’s still battered,
and there’s still signs of its use,
but please take this token.
Hold it close
and hold it dear.
Even though it’s weathered,
it still loves you completely,
so please cherish
every piece of my heart.
