My little bear

You gave me this little bear
When I was only five
You always took such care
Your love kept me alive

I can honestly say
As my teardrops start to pour
Up to this very day
No one has loved me more

Punkin is what you called me
And Dads favorite little girl
I wonder if you could see
You were my entire world

You always had a surprise
A bunny, turtle or guppy
I remember the joy in your eyes
When in your coat pocket you had a puppy

Your eyes lit up when you saw me
ours both the same shade of light gray
Never a sorrow or scratched up knee
That you couldn’t make go away

The most generous man I’ve ever known
You alone had the biggest heart
My love for you has continuously grown
All these years that we’ve been apart

My little bear sits above my bed
And has for forty two years
And for every tear that I have shed
I know our reunion nears

Now I have a beautiful little girl
I wish you could have met her
She wanted to be part of our world
Just to know her grandpa better

So she found a little shirt with care
That said, “Mom I love You”
She put it on my little bear
So now she’s a part of us too.

That last time I looked into your eyes
I can’t remember how long it’s been
but your words really came as no surprise
when you said, “Punkin, I’ll see you again”

Artist's Description

My Dad was the greatest. He owned a pet shop when I was growing up, my excuse for all my animals now. He died of cancer about 17 years ago but he’s never been far from my thoughts. I still miss him so bad it hurts, I can’t wait to see him again.
