The White Teddy Bear - Poem by Duong Tam Quoc

I looked for a Valentine gift
To enhance my girls' belief
A gift is not only for fun
But it is also good for their long run

I found a white teddy bear
Wearing a pink heart in front
This white teddy bear
Loves all beings as she swears

There is no war
In her pink heart
There is a great love
She'd like to show

To her grandfathers
And her grandmothers
To her daddy
And her mommy

This white teddy bear
Is happy to share
The things she has
With all her grace
To her little sister

...Then all my daughters
Became the love givers
Just like the white teddy bear
To take a pink heart to wear.

    A lovely and sweet poem relating the innocent love of a child for her teddy bear to the love of all humans for peace and gentleness. Cam on, Ong Quoc! (Report)Reply
