He sits upon the cabinet

tipped so slightly askew

he was your first teddy bear

how he reminds me of you

he was cuddled and loved

and clung onto so tight

i think back on times

of long talks into night

When you came for a visit

you spotted your old toy

a girlish squeal excaped

as you scooped him up in joy

when you left one more time

with teddy bear in tow

i felt that tug at my heart

as i watched you both go

the small thread that bonds us

grows quite taut and thin

I feel bits of me vanish

far down & deep within

my daughter, my love

my dear sweet pumpkin pie

I wish you safe travels

with each parting good-bye

Grow strong & be wise

choose well as you learn

stop often, think twice

use care at each turn

I miss you, I love you

these feelings pour free

it's hard watching you live

going on, not needing me.

WOW, I feel like I just intruded into a very special place. :-6
Old age and treachery, is an acceptable response to overwelming youth and skill :D

That's beautiful, minks! I'm not looking forward to that part of my daughter's growing up. Probably because she keeps taking MY teddy bears!

I hope you give a copy of this to your daughter. It will mean just as much to her as it does to you.

Thanks and your right it wasn't something I was looking forawrd to either. But I guess that is life as a parent. I shall give her a copy but she likely will cry. Then I will :(
