Take me down from the shelf.
Open my back and put in new batteries.
Program me to do what you want:
Clean.
Sleep.
Listen.
Obey.
But never speak.
If I were to speak for myself,
You would remove my batteries
And throw me away;
Never to look my way again.
There in that can
I will rust away.
Only when my circuits are bare,
Will you dispose of me properly.

And then I will find you
And handle with care
And see not the rust
But all the hope that is there
.
I will place you in my arms
And clean and tend
Find the pieces that were broken
And begin to make amends
When I am done
Brand new you will be
I'll give you a mirror
A new, beautiful self you'll see.

I don't think I can ever thank you enough for being here for me - it just means so much to me.

Your smile, your welfare is all I need. I hope things get better. I care about you. So much.
