Teddy Bear
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
You sit with me in my time of need
When no one else is my friend
When I’ve been scolded and yelled at
When I’ve done wrong
You hug me and make it better
You say “It’s ok, they’ll get over it”
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
I tell you all my secrets
And you keep them
Just like a good friend would
I trust you
“And that’s only one of the reasons
We’re such great friends” you always say
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
You protect me when thunderstorms come
Lightning flashes and I squeeze you tighter
Thunder booms and you absorb my tears
The powers out and you comfort me
As I cry and cry and you say
“It’s ok, it’s alright”
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
As Mommy and Daddy fight
We sit on the stairs and silently cry
We know where this is going
And as Daddy packs his bags
You turn to me and smile
You say “This only means you have two bedrooms”
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
As I lay in the hospital
You lay beside me
Together we learned we must wear helmets
And keep our eyes on the road
We’re both very banged up
And you say “We’ll get better”
And you’re always right


Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
On my first day of third grade in a new school
You sit by me on the bus
You see that I’m sad
Because I have no friends
You smile your friendly smile and say
“Don’t worry you’ll make friends”
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
As I sit in my room and cry
Because I was called mean names
You make me smile
By acting like you beating her up
“You’ll get her” you say
I doubt you, But I’ wrong
And you’re always right

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
As I see you sitting on my dusty shelf
I sigh as I think of our good times
You said that we’d be together forever
That we’d be inseparable till the very end
But over the years I discovered makeup and texting
So I take you down and hug you
Because for once you were wrong

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is so sweet and a little sad at the end, bu it's true! I've never been in a hospital, but the rest of the events are something similar what I've been through. You're a wonderful writer!!! Keep on!!! ^_^ thank you, for sharing this!!!

Thanks! For this particular poem I tried to get into the mind of a child. I don't really know how it worked since I obviously DON'T have the mind of a third grader... but thanks.
