Wondering what I could write about, I looked around my house and saw many Teddy bears, then thought, why do I have so many of them? Read the answer.



Bears, why I long            for and love you

Somewhere    back       in mind     and time

I had a      teddy bear white       and blue.

Sorry,   but I must make this  rhyme.

Truly, a bear was white and blue,

Remembering him with no fur.

Made of cloth, but he was new,

He was a plain bear,

but not a cur.

A real gift from                            a true grandparent,

To signified for-                               ever a special love.

A love rare and                                seldom apparent

Lost, but stayed                                 in thoughts above.

Remembrance of                            my Grandma’s lap

A rare, yet, truly                       wonderful moment

Savored throughout time under cap

Developed into an urge, truly bent,

With teddy bears found everywhere.

Teddy bear cushions, even a throw

Some pullovers with teddy bears

Found them in places high and low.

But in my mind       is one teddy bear

Had,            but lost,       yet, still          cherished

Left a            special        memory of          her care.

I will  keep,                    until I have perished.

On one of my poems, think it was called "Lost Virginity" I have a picture of me at about 4 years old, in my hand was a teddy bear, that I cherished for ever and a day...he was given me by my grandmom too, in fact the picture has her standing to my right, but it doesnt show her well. Anyway, that bear was one day tossed, its head falling off and its stuffing mostly gone, but I do empathize with you here Pat, we never forget that one special bear...excellent poem, thanks for the memories...Peace thru Words, Ed & rufuz
