Stand guard,
don't back down.
You can win
if you only try.

Sword in one hand,
shield in another,
he stands over his charge
ready to die.

He was the person
that you told everything to.
The one you went crying to.
The one who never ran out of hugs.
The one who soaked up your tears.
The one who you carried around everywhere.
The one who always slept by your side.

He's your teddy bear.

He guards over you at night,
because while you might not believe,
the monsters are still there.

They come at night
when you don't expect it
to take what they want.

Even though
you don't run to him anymore
your teddy bear remembers.

He remembers the endless love.
He remembers everything.

Every night he stands
sword in one hand,
shield in another,
ready to fight.

All for the person
who loves him the most.

This is really very touching. I still can't really sleep without my plushie (not a bear but a platypus). You have a really good expression and very vivid way of describing things without being pathetic. I could really connect to your story. Very inspring work!

When I was little I practically was fused to my teddy bear. This really taps into my heart.... I actually did turn around, found my teddy bear, and hugged it. :heart:

Gonna go out on a limb here and assume you put your whole soul into this work, cuz by GOD thats the idea you effectively projected. Two things in particular, both involving the bear. You placed him outside the bed, not merely resting by the kid, really giving the impression he's being vigilant. Second, you didn't make his ...fighting aura... overwhelmingly huge and strong, rather, juuust enough to deal with the foe at hand. Very well thought out.

Haven't seen anything like this before, doubt I will ever again.
