Bear

Bear

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

He is privy to her secrets none of which he will ever share the lifelong friend, who in the end is her very own Teddy Bear

"


Paytons Bear: True treasure is when her own children will one day hold her little bear and again know the joy that counts above all else his "Love"




Here was the friend that heard the cries

from the monster under the bed

Who stood watch over her at night

just to scare away fear and dread

 

Through all the pain and the laughter

he's shared the pleasures and the tears

Watched over her every day

as the months have now turned to years

 

He is privy to her secrets

none of which he will ever share

The lifelong friend, who in the end

is her very own Teddy Bear


He takes the blame for toys left out

while passing her a knowing wink

The mess was his upon the floor

and the dishes not in the sink



His the last face she sees each night

a smile, greets her every morn

Their's is a friendship born of love

the bond that will never be torn

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
In the four years since my granddaughter was born she has had a Bear. This bear stood her in good stead through laughter and tears. He was there when her father died. He dried up all the tears that they both cried. He has slept beside her every night and played with her everyday taking on any roll her skits called for. Payton is rarely seen without Bear.So when her mother called to tell us Payton had taken Bear to show and tell at preschool I had to smile. For here is the repository of all her hopes, dreams and fears. All contained in the little bear with the big heart.

Very nice! With my three boys, now grown, had blankeys. These little silk rimmed pieces of cloth were waited for on laundry day with tears and tantrums, and weaned away as they left home for pre-school. I loved this poem as it reminded me of my own "Teddy", a stuffed tiger I named 'Daniel". Well done!
