This Teddy bear must have had lots of love to be worn, and patched, and stuff lacking, but you do pose a good question. I always loved stuffed animals, and still do. I always treat them as though they have feelings. Usally they have a story behind them too. My favorites are the ones I rescue from the sides of roads, or walking paths, they seem to be the ones that need a gentle hand to bring them back to life. I enjoyed your poem, great job.
