THe Repair Shop

one of my favourite programmes on the BBC is The Repair
Shop this is my ode to that show

The Repair Shop

There is a programme on the BBC, where we bring our treasured things,
And experts in their chosen fields, mend the things we bring,
The memories that these things evoke, endow the possessors with such joy,
Most things are very are old and loved, a battered chair, a broken toy,
A pot that’s shattered too, all remnants of a loved one’s life,
Passed on to future family, form part of our life’s glue,
We don’t expect miracles but that is sometimes what we get,
Whilst skilful artisans make our objects just like new,
“Thank you” seems hardly words enough, to express our heartfelt joy,
When are revealed the objects, we remembered as a girl or boy,
Grand ma’s, Grandads, Uncles, Aunts, Mothers, Fathers too,
Remembered with such love and Joy, through objects that we knew.
