If Teddy Bears Could Talk


If Teddy Bears could talk,

What would they say?

What would they tell you,

About the children with whom they play?


They might tell you things

You don't want to hear;

Like Mommy hurt Tommy,

Or Daddy is who we fear.


The Teddy Bears of children

Are not just some toy;

They're sometimes the only love felt,

By some little girl or boy.


So when you see a child

Scared and alone,

Find him a Teddy Bear

In need of a home.


Know that you've done good

By the deed in your heart,

You've given this child

A place for love to start.
