Your Forgotten Teddy Bear

It sits in a box 
On a closet shelf
An extension for years
Of your tiny self

A brown teddy bear
You once held dear
and carried around
I remember it clear

I’ve taken it down
A time or two
To remember a time
When devotion was true

It still wears the nose
That it was given
Though bald in places
Where fur is missin’

With one eye lost
We never found
You loved it still
With friendship sound

A childhood memory
That I hold dear
Comes to me
When I hold it near

    This is lovely Debra. i have been trying to get arouind to writing one. The contests have been coming so fast. My husband died suddenly without warning of a heart attack. He had always had perfect heath as far as we knew and was a very outgong personality. I lost my son at 55 with the same scenario. Love, Joyce
