Teddy Bear-

My sweet little Teddy Bear...
Mommy gave 'YOU' to me.
Now I never sleep alone at night.
The comfort you gave, when God's sunny eyes ran out of light.

You are my sweet little teddy bear... 
You kept me company throughout the years.
I hugged you, when my eyes were full of tears.
Loving you, squeezing you. 
We both express many joyful dance of cheers.
Together we sang lullabies, without you singing one single word.
We drank from the same teacup, whispered about the pretty birds.
Now listen, as I mumble extra words into your ear.
My sweet Teddy Bear, you are always here.

We snuggled every night staring at the star frame window.
"You held my hand every-time I was lost in my own imaginary limbo.

My sweet little Teddy Bear...
I'm 11 now, and my mother loves me dearly.
Sadly she felt it's time to find me a daddy.
Little does she knows, my daddy visits every night in my dreams.

Now her boyfriend visits my room and tells me not to scream.
Little Teddy bear, I never showed you fear before I fell asleep.
Little Teddy bear, tonight I do not want to count sheep. 
Teddy bear, now I hold you closer, and tighter than before.
Little Teddy Bear let me cover your ears, from the screeching door.
Little Teddy Bear, he said he will hurt mommy If I tell anyone.
Little Teddy Bear, I know you see and hear everything!!!

    You touch on very emotive subject and use such tenderness. Beautifully written. To be able to see through the eyes of a child. Brilliant, thank you.

    very cool song btw-- and can you believe it? I haven't really fully watched Wizard of Oz, so I am just imagining how that song sounds like, cool how you replaced Kansas with the Philippines though ;) I am just winging the melody-- to lazy and sleepy to search youtube now

    ooh my captcha said "PSPD" -- so P.S. PD--> I just read your last comment asking me why I am hiding--not really hiding, but more of taking a break that happened to land me in a place where I got quite busy that it was simpler to keep out of here....but yes admittedly, I did miss being here, only thing is I can't spend a lot of time here--so this is like a once in a blue moon thing for me now--

    haha, but yeah, as usual, I extended, but seriously so nice to hear from you, pd! :) I had a good bday, felt the love so that humbled me.

    I remember reading this and thinking how heart wrenching, still is after all this time-- and ahh, no wonder it got returned back to me! I will re-send it one of these days, I had even enclosed some stickers for Ezzelle....yup, I still have you on YM-- I will catch you online soon, ok? my internet's slow, what's new? so it's taking forever to post here. grr. I was supposed to sleep now,

    Congrats PD on this win.

    Oh yes PD...I remember well this shocking and devestating gem... I know it's not about you but it unfortunately happens often...I am a proud step-father who raised three wonderful and beautiful step-daughters from childhood and am proud to say that I NEVER considered such a perverted and evil act!...However, a nosy-idiot 'friend' of my wife once warned her to keep an eye on me!...Needless to say, my wife slapped her silly...Congrats, my friend - Tim

    Ok!...One more time and I quit! Step-daughters AND daughters often get 'crushes', making them easy prey...the same is true for boys...I remember well having a MONSTER crush on my's a wierd world...

    It also makes me very angry that sexual abuse by step-fathers gives decent and loving ones a bad name...I honestly believe that when some people learn that you are a step-father, somewhere in the back of their minds they think, 'Uh-oh, I wonder...

    Linda Congratultions on a very well deserved win.I hope this is just fiction and not a reality. If it isn't fiction, then I can empathise with you. I know how you would be feeling. Well done. Very sad and touching. Love Pam

    PD a well deserved win. A childhood lost, but fight your demons, and forgive yourself and the one who hurt you. It's difficult, but not impossible. Be true to yourself my friend. Warm Wishes, Connie
