Lost TeddyMore Like This
Searching around my room
Looking for my phone
And reaching under my bed
To find my long lost teddy.
I pick him up and hold him close
Remembering him very well
Closing my eyes and letting msyelf
Slip back into my childhood wonder.
Exploring roads to other lands
That was only my driveway
And going through exotic jungles
Through my tree-filled back yard.
He went everywhere with me
Ever since I was young.
But as the years went by
He lay forgotten under me.
My days of being three years old
Are now long in my past.
But whenever I want to go back there.
I clutch my teddy close to my chest.
Talking to him before I sleep
I ask him how he is
Hoping his friends won't miss him
As his only ones were the dust bunnies.
