Ode to Floppy

By , Boise, ID
When you were hurt
I stitched you up.
Numerous scars
Mark your seams,
lined with pink
and sealed with kisses

The fuzz on your nose
Worn away
From snuggles of the millions

Lending a floppy eat
when I was hurt,
embracing me
with your pink fluff of reassurance

Going to school
First, Second, Third grade
You waited patiently
hidden under the covers,
waiting for me to get home
And the sun to set
for me to come under
the covers
to make up for snuggle time
lost during school.

Bubblegum softness,
Tidal pool eyes
waiting to be swam in.
She takes her place
beside my bed,
a stuffed bunny
Symbolizing my childhood love
