You scoffed when you discovered I have a heart made of paper. You believe yours is better, it is not so.
I wouldn't change my paper heart. If it gets soaked, it can dry. Children in summer attach a tail to make a kite. The wind blows it here and there, it spreads love and happiness.
Unlike yours, it won't break. Whenever it tears, I tape it. Moreover, I can write lovely stories on my paper heart.
My paper heart might not be a lot but it is all I have to offer. It is yours if you want it.

    What a beautiful metaphor! (Too generous an offer to make to a scoffer...)
