Forgotten Teddy Bear

Waiting

On the gravel path

I was left here

He walked away

As I looked at his back

Wondering why

He dropped me

.

I was

The teddy bear

With velvet arms

I was

The comforted

Warm in the night

Yet

He dropped me

.

I am a teddy bear

I could not

Walk away

I can not

Walk alone

Yet I

Am expected

To get back on my feet

.

I look forward now

The direction I was dropped

Wishing for a blue fairy
To save me

No one

Is here

As my stuffing

Begins to fall

.

A little kid

With his mother

Picks me off the ground

“Can we keep it”

A sewing stitch away

New stuffing

A new doll

With barely the fabric

Of the dropped one

.

I meet

The lost owner

Sitting

In the little kids hands

I feel

Nostalgia

But I am

A new doll

Not the teddy that

Was dropped

I cannot return

Change back

That gravely day
