Teddy Bear

A stuffed bear sits on a toy shop shelf,
A little girl wants it for herself,
Her mother buys,
Because the bear lights up the girl’s eyes.

Dragged on the floor at home, school, and play,
The bear is the girls best friend today,
Through thick and thin,
It never once got chucked in the bin.

Years later it’s on a bedroom shelf,
It’s been replaced by a green wooly elf,
The girl learns to bake pies,
She gets older in her mother’s eyes.

Even later still a little girl plays hide and seek,
And in the attic she has a little peek,
Her mother’s teddy bear,
Placed on a dusty old rocking chair.

Dragged on the floor at home, school, and play,
The bear is the girls best friend today,
Through thick and thin,
It never once got chucked in the bin.
