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 when 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 would hurt mommy If I tell anyone
Little Teddy Bear, I know you see and hear everything!!!

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--

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

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...

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

Dear Linda, a childhood stolen can never be truly repaired from so heavy an invisiable burden the mind can't erase. Your heartfelt poem reveals this sorrow poignantly. Congratulations on your deserving First Place win!
