What do you see # 17- February 17, 2020 – My Old Teddy

I’ve seen so much I could write a book.

Secrets I hold, lies I’ve been told.

One generation to the next

I’ve been held, cuddled and thrown,

A comfort one day, a punching bag the next.

I’m in retirement now

My days are spent resting

For the most part, neglected and forgotten

Just part of a family, so taken for granted.

  1. At least he wasn’t operated upon by some nasty brother and sister, intent on taking his growl away. 🙂
