The Teddy Bear
How many seated in these chairs
recall such love that he has shown?
How many generations here
will say such love they’ve known?
How many infants rocked to sleep
in gentle arms against the breast?
How many generations keep
such treasures from this chest?
How many children, eyes alight,
know Teddy as their favorite toy?
How many giggle with delight
to share their greatest joy?
How many lives have grown around
the comfort of our most-loved bear?
The generations handed down
this treasure with such care.
Our Teddy Bear was loved by all –
His ready smile could never dim;
The generations now sound the call
to share our lives with him.
