Teddy

I once had a toy

A cherished bear I called

Teddy

He’d sit under my arm

Whilst lying in bed

He’d sleep by my side

Every night restful and

Steady

Sleep well and be happy

Is what Teddy said

I have him today

Boxed with soft toys

Out of reach

Out of sight – (out of mind)

Day after day

But I know he is

There – like sand on

The beach

Hold fast and stay strong

Is what Teddy would say

In a moment like this –  

With resilience

The key

Stoic and steadfast –

Traits Teddy possesses

I need you more now

Than ever – I’d say to

My bear

In a moment like this –

In a time for confessions
