I wrote this poem for a dear neighbor I just met. Her son died 3 months ago. I wanted her to have something to hold on to...something tangible. We all need a teddy bear from time to time so I bought her one and made this poem for her.

 Sorrow Bear      written by Mary E Tilley


I may be just a stuffed little bear

My shoulders very small

I canít even say anything

And Iím nearly a foot tall.


My eyes are made of buttons

I was born in a factory,

But my heart is extra big

Will you belong to me?


Iím just a tiny friend

To help you along your way

When your tears come

Just hold me in your arms and pray


I know that God cares for you

Cause he told me so

He sent me from Heaven

Just to let you know.


He sends his love and guidance

And says put away your fears

You are in his loving arms

I was sent  from Heaven to dry your tears.


So when the pain is too much to handle

And you need some love and care

Hold on tight to me my friend

Iím your sorrow bear.

Mary, this is heart rendering and touched me this morning and filled me with a knowing that people do care. Your sorrow bear will give your dear friend a reason to hold on and to know we all grieve when the hour of death appears and it's all right to do so. I'm sure she loves the bear & the poem and will forever treasure them. God used you as a angel to bring comfort in a trying time.
