Spreading the Love…my way

Teddy bear…

september 29th, 2012

I’ve got a new friend and she’s gonna do something against child abuse in the near future. She asked me to design a card for her. She also gave me permission to share the design here.

So here it is…. I’ve added a little story i found somewhere on the net a few years ago. It so sad, it breaks my heart….

Dear Teddy

Teddy, i’ve been bad again, my mommy told me so;

I’m not quite sure what i did wrong, but i thought that you might know.

When i woke up this morning, i knew that she was mad;

Cause she was crying awful hard, and yelling at my dad.

I tried my best to be real good, and just do what she said;

I cleaned my room all by myself, i even made my bed.

But i spilled milk on my good shirt, when she yelled at me to hurry;

And i guess she didn’t hear me, when i told her i was sorry,

Cause she hit me awful hard, you see, and called me funny names;

And told me i was really bad, and i should be ashamed!

When i said, “I love you mommy,” i guess she didn’t understand;

Cause she yelled at me to shut my mouth, or i’d get smacked again.

So i came up here to talk to you, please tell me what to do

Cause i really love my mommy, and i know she loves me too.

And i don’t think my mommy means, to hit me quite so hard;

I guess sometimes, grown ups forget how really big they are!

So teddy, i wish you were real, and you weren’t just a bear;

Then you could help me find a way to tell mommies everywhere,

To please try hard to understand how sad it makes us feel;

Cause the outside pain soon goes away, but the inside never heals!

And if we could make them listen, maybe then they’d understand;

so other children just like me, wouldn’t have to hurt again.

But for now, i guess i’ll hold you tight and pretend the pain’s not there;

I know you’d never hurt me, so goodnight, Teddy Bear!

( I have no idea who wrote this, if you do, please tell me, so i can give that person credit… )
