A glance at the stars in the
Middle of the city,
And the sky is shining brighter
Than I remember-
I suddenly feel so small.
A glance at the stars while we
Play outside at night;
Nothing to guide us home
Except their light,
Feeling protected in their presence.
A glance at the stars on the
Night we met
Their grace instilling hope.
I smile up at the sky,
Knowing they’re smiling back.
A glance at the stars with a
Heavy heart and the ghosts of tears
On my face. I can’t see you
But I feel you, wherever you are,
Comforting me like you always have.
One person seeking solace
From the pain that befalls us
One person waiting with open arms
Minus the fear of harm
Equals one bond
Created from a friendship so strong.
At first you didn’t have a name
When you arrived to me
With your tan fluffy fur
Donning a brown ribbon
Speckled with white spots
That was ruined with a rip
And had to be surgically removed
“I’ll call him my feel better bear”
I said to my mom
As I snuggled against your fur
Held you tight against my chest
And hoped you’d make my illness go away.
It was amazing
Because you healed me
And that day onward
You were always by my side.
It wasn’t until I was playing
With a friend in the past but foe in the future
When we decided to name you
“How about Honey?”
“He is a bear after all.”
And that was what your name became
Because even though you couldn’t talk
I knew you were as sweet as honey
And what better remedy than that?
After all, you were my feel-better bear.
