"Bearly there"

Back when the world was grandma's couch
of comfy sun-kissed plush
that would dispel our biggest ouch
while springs sang softly, "Hush",

back when the teddy bears weren't toys,
but pals, when you and I
shared tons of troubles, tons of joys
and one enormous sky,

back when beginnings had no end,
before the why and how,
we used to know the truth, my friend - 
all that we have is now.

Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (a.k.a. "Happy")

  1. And before I knew the joke of it - I had and have a stuffed pink elephant...
    And a very well loved small red dog (not the famed Clifford) - alas those years did not last long - and yet these 'now' years too seem to fly swiftly by.

    A reminder of grandmothers... very nice. Thank you. ~Jules
