by [Faith.Hope.Love], aka Artsieladie/Sharon Donnelly ©1994
          I was simply sitting
           Feeling a little down
          Squeezing a Teddy Bear
           So furry, soft, and brown.
          But, then my sadness rolled out
           And formed into a tear.
          As it dropped upon my Teddy,
           I couldn't believe my ear!
          In a voice as soft as he,
           He started to speak.
          I couldn't help but listen
           As he cuddled near my cheek.
          Teddy said, "I do not know
           The reason of your tear,
          But I can cheer you up
           If you'll only squeeze me near."
          Though astonished as I was,
           I squeezed him near and tight.
          I felt a warmth rise within me
           As I hugged with all my might.
          Teddy softly spoke again.
           He started,"Don't you know?
          What makes a Teddy Bear special?
           What makes you love me so?"
          Still, in total amazement
           I could only stare,
          For here upon my lap
           Was a talking Teddy Bear!
          But, I swallowed hard.
           Then I whispered," No!
          What is the secret....
           That makes me love you so?"
          Teddy's eyes twinkled
           As he winked at me and said,
          "There's more to bears than stuffing,
           So think of us, instead,
          As being made with kindness
           That grows within YOUR heart,
          For that's the very best
           From your most important part.
          Look into a mirror
           Beyond the fancy clothes,
          Beyond the fancy things,
           To what truly glows.
          As you look into that mirror,
           Look at you...inside.
          Everyone's a Teddy Bear
           Which, too often they will hide."
          Teddy paused a moment.
           A long, deep breath he drew.
          He looked at me and smiled
           But he wasn't through, I knew.
          Once again Teddy spoke
           In his quiet way
          And I listened very carefully
           To all he had to say.
          "A Teddy Bear.....
           That sits upon a shelf
          Doesn't come alive
           All by it's lonely self.
          But, when a person, big or small
           Reaches out to touch
          And hug a Teddy Bear
           They'll feel so very much."
          He paused again briefly
           And gave a little sigh.
          I had no doubts within me
           As he looked into my eye.
          I squeezed a little tighter.
           I hugged a little more.
          Suddenly, I realized that
           I felt different than before
          I had felt so sad
           When we had first begun.
          But, now my heart felt happy.
           Teddy's words had won.
          My lips parted, for
           I was about to speak,
          But, Teddy raised a paw
           So gently and so meek.
          Once again he spoke
           In words that rang so true.
          "I'm your love inside.
           Now I’ve returned to you!
          The warmth you give to others
           Will return to you some how,
          In different forms, it's true,
           But, in Teddy form right now."
          I thought of all the times
           I had helped someone in need,
          And what Teddy spoke of here
           Felt so wonderful indeed!!
          I turned to look at Teddy
           Wondering if I had dreamed.
          I thought I had, truly,
           But then, he winked. I beamed!!
          Now each and every time
           I hug a Teddy Bear,
          I feel that warmth and love
           And how great it is to care!
          For each and every time
           I cheer a lonely soul
          Or lend a helping hand
           Or fill an empty bowl,
          I think of Teddy Bear,
           The words he had spoken.
          I'm sharing them with you
           And Teddy is my token...
          Of friendship and love-
           Honest, true, sincere.
          May he put a smile
           In the place of any tear.
          Teddy Bears stand for love,
           Kindness, hope and truth.
          It's quite simple, actually!
           We need no 'super sleuth'!
