    Glass can shatter into a thousand pieces,

    With patience and good precision, it can be
    glued back together again.

    But....

    There will always be little fine lines remaining,
    Reminding you of the cracks
    That were once there....

    So for my heart's sake......

    Please don't Break the Glass:(

    Noble is the word,
    Loved it. You can mend it, but
    once it's broke it's broke, never to be like it was.
    very tight poem.
