This weeks prompts from Josie at Two Shoes In Texas were lost or habit I went for lost.
Now lost is one of those words that resound with me at the moment. I'm always getting lost recently and I lose things all the time and I kinda feel lost most of the time. So I had to think hard as I think the word lost could have produced some spectacularly dark and sad post.
Here's my offering to the Two Shoes Tuesday party....I give you
We had a little teddy bear,
The cutest thing you had ever seen.
We got him from a fairground
And his name was Green.
He was a tinky,tiny thing,
That fitted in just one hand.
He became my sons bestest friend,
And on that we hadn't planned.
You see,Green was unique.
No other Green could be found.
And one day the worst thing happened
He fell onto the ground.
And nobody saw him go,
So we carried on with our shopping,
We didn't know Green had tumbled.
We had no thoughts of stopping.
Suddenly my son noticed that his friend had gone.
But it was too late,
And nothing could be done.
Everybody searched,for that little bear.
The truth was though,that he had simply disappeared.
We never did find him,
And my son was bereft.
We haven't forgotten him though
And the memories he left.
My son was seventeen months old when we lost Green. In early baby and toddler photos Green is always by his side. No matter what teddy bear or cuddly toy we tried as replacement to Green our son never accepted them and after Green he never had a favourite cuddly toy.
Being as Green was from a fairground we couldn't find any similar replacement but when my next son began to have a favourite cuddly toy I was wise and ordered replacements,just in case the worse thing happened!
