In Dreamland

Tossed away, abandoned

or dropped by accident

this teddy has to wonder

just where it’s owner went.


Left to lie there on the grass

with daisies all around,

it could not call out for some help,

it’s sadness was profound.


The teddy then just closed it’s eyes,

fell in a dream-filled sleep,

where fantasy could reign supreme

in slumber sound and deep.


Better to just drift away,

rest there upon the ground,

the bear exists in dreamland -

at least until it’s found.

Aww, I hope he has sweet dreams until he finds another home. This made me feel quite emotional. Can you write a sequel where everyone lives happily after?

Maybe... that's certainly a possibility. Thanks for the idea, Sue.
