Best Friend

Photo by Marina Shatskikh on

I watch as you grow up
my glass eyes frozen 
no more a bub 
girl to woman 

I am allowed to fade
out of your life 
playtime charade 
the tea pot is empty

Your shadow was I
best friend
did you tell a lie?
when you said forever 

Now just once did you hold me
to whisper a goodbye
and I silently agree 
though a stuffed bear, I cry

You change your mind
the memories are strong
in your heart kindness I find
you hold me once again

Best friends we remain
though we no longer play
my youth I regain 
glass eyes sparkle

once again

W3 Prompt #45: Wea’ve Written Weekly.

II. David ben Alexander’s prompt guidelines

  • Write a poem from the perspective of an inanimate household object, using personification.

For this prompt I chose to write about a teddy bear. I have an army of them, I don’t think I’ll ever throw them away…they are too precious. While I don’t think a teddy bear is a household object…it is universal, found almost in every household!

Thanks for reading 💕

  1. Wow, Aboli… this is like a small, emotional rollercoaster! How poignantly written! ❤

    Much love,

    P.S. don’t forget to share your link to this post on “Mister Linky”. Otherwise the other participants won’t ever see this poem of yours.

    All you have to do is go to the W3 prompt and scroll to the middle of the page, just below the instructions for this prompt.

    There you will find a small, white, horizontal rectangle, with the words “Mister Linky” on it. Just click on that rectangle, and share your link! ❤
