“Ode to a Childhood Stuffed Animal”


                You’ve been by my side since the age of three

You’ve seen me cry millions of rivers, and cause earthquakes with my anger

        You’ve been smeared in mud and paint, but still stick by my side

       Getting snuggled every night till I thought I was done with you

    Shoving you under the bed only having the dust bunnies as company

                   The cold wood pressed against you

    Still wearing the friendship bracelet with my initial on it 

       Hearing me talk on the phone rather than talk to you

    From doing everything with you, to forgetting about your comfort you brought

   From the countless nights you kept me warm and safe from the fights of my mom and dad

But growing up made me realize how much you actually mean.

Dusting you off, giving you some good cleaning and now keeping you on my bed

You now, again are feeling the sensation of love
