these then are the scars of a child's love
by a special friend they are worn
a friend, loved and adored.
Who is this special friend?
One who is with you to the end?
It is a teddy bear
guardian of your secrets
keeper of your dreams.
A dear friend who cares
one who never schemes
a protector against fear,
so that you need not dread anything
that hides beneath the bed.
Thank you, my teddy,
my loving little bear
for all these years of love and care,
and so many memories of times past,
memories that will last and last.
