He’s your surrogate

Made of cloth

Button eyes and a stitched nose

Hugged and kissed

Soft fur to rough

I’ve talk to him

As I would talk

to you

And at times

As talk would go

He talks to me

As I  

Would have


Talk to me

Clever little

Bundle of cloth

That bear you gave

To me


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Cute white stuffed polar bear recieved as a gift Valentines Day 2016.  Presented with a florish from under a topcoat in the dead of winter, I melted.  I use to think it silly to give grown women stuffed animals, until I recieved one when not expected. And it looks just like him.:)

I love it! It's sentimental & honest, and poetic, which is hard to do. I'm an editing freak, I'd say trust yourself. i didn't see anything that made me stumble. Your words flowed & the idea and emotion hit home! ;-)
