Before I was 3
my teddy bear
was taken
from me
and giving to my
infant brother

Many Christmas’s
have passed…
15 years later
my brother
gave me
a Christmas
that I’ll never forget

My brother
gave me this
HUGE box

As I’m opening it,
I find
paper towels
toilet paper
and more of the
same stuff

At the bottom
very bottom of
the box

with a red ribbon
around its neck
to replace
what was taken
so many years
