Poetry By: angellynn

Parents get so caught up in disagreements. They dont realize the pain a child feels. Carefully listening to the words exchanged. Children take it very seriously.

My Friend Teddy

I sit and listen to them fight

they call each other names

I find a place for us to hide

I`m the one they blame


I hold Teddy closer to me

holding tightly as I can

I`m not scared of the dark

because I have you friend


Are you scared I ask Teddy

cause it`s quite ok to cry

Pretending tears are falling

I wipe his button eyes


Suddenly it grew very quiet

Teddy held to me so tight

Then mom finally found us

hiding in the dark of night


Oh honey we`re so sorry

It wont happen ever again

I smiled and softly whisper

thanks my furry friend
