The disappointed teddy bear says,
"I was supposed to be cuddly, to sleep on a child's bed, guarding her dreams."
The unfulfilled flower pot says,
"I was supposed to bear beautiful flowers to line the garden, but instead I am upside down and stacked."
The teddy bear's heart is as heavy as the rest of him.
The flower pot's heart is full, but only with emptiness.
This is why it rains in the garden--
It is the only way they can cry.
