I thought of you today, many many times.
Happy joyful thoughts.
Of the thoughts I have, many ask the same questions.
Most of those come down to one…
What can I do for you?
When you can’t sleep, I can keep you company.
When you want to share, I can lend an ear.
When you need a hug, I’ll be your teddy bear.
When you want a kiss, I will pucker up!
When you are sad, I’ll be your clown.
When you are happy, I will admire your smiles.
When you find yourself alone, I’ll be your friend.
When your overwhelmed, I can steal you away.
When you feel you have nothing, I’ll give myself to you.
When the weight of the world is on your shoulders, I can help carry the load.
When your feeling lighter then air, I’ll fly with you.
When you feel about to fall, I’ll help lower you to the ground.
Of course, I must stop to check myself.
I’ve been humbled by my own human frailty.
There are times I might not make the best company.
Some things you want to say to me, I might not immediately hear.
My stuffing might be lumpier at times than the average plush bear.
There will be days when my lips may not seem as soft.
On days when I am also sad, I won’t make the best clown.
On days when you are happy, I may miss some smiles
There could be times when you are alone, that you won’t even want me around.
Sometimes stealing you away may involving taking more than is mine.
Should I find myself with nothing, giving that nothing to you may not help your cause.
Holding up the world all the time is not something I am great at myself.
Flying is fun – especially with you
but sometimes I may fear falling myself.
So what can I actually do?
I can do my best…
… and I can try to do what I can,
as often as I can.
It shall be my greatest joy,
especially to do it for you.
