Teddy Bear

how many nights
you kept
the monsters
at bay
with your fluffy paws
when i was
still little
and too scared to sleep

how many days
you spent
being dragged around
by an ear
or an arm
or carried in a heartfelt
choke-hold

loved fiercely,
washed scarcely,
for fear you could drown
in the washing machine

you gave me comfort,
i gave you a soul.

i will never forget
my first
true friend.
