Once when you were only two,
I used to sit right next to you,
I’d guard you bravely as you slept,
And comfort you each time you wept.
Bumpity-bump through mud and snow,
I followed everywhere you’d go,
But bruising bumps could not erase,
That silly grin upon my face.
Thumps and hugs and loving deeds
Are all that any Teddy needs.
