  1. A precious little friend.

    This has the perfect blend of melancholy and love.

  3. There's something so dear and heart-rending about the final image: silent music box. So much power in a well-loved friend. Thanks, Mary Lee!

  9. Oh, the silent music box gets to me...guess you have to hum to the teddy bear now.
    Love this!

  10. I still have my teddy bear, and he is a bit thinner than a long time ago. So sweet, Mary Lee.

  11. I no longer have my teddy, but he was definitely worn thin by love. And the memory makes me smile. Thanks.

  12. And what is the tune that the music box played? We once had a hand-me-down donkey that played "On the Trail" from the Grand Canyon Suite. It was awesome! I wonder if I could find it...

  13. I ache at
    "silent music box"
    Audible sound when I read it.
    Seeing this heartmelt relic in the chair provides a soothing balance.
    Publish this poem elsewhere - it's so good.
