To Liam - From Wil, The Teddybear - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

To introduce myself: I'm Wil.
I hope you like my hair!
And, should you find I fit the bill,
I'll be your special bear.

I'm well-behaved and can be quiet.
I sleep all night in one position.
I'm not to choosy with my diet.
Like reading books or going fishing.

So, here I am - respected Master-
your other half (and that's not silly) ,
but to avoid a big disaster
I ask you: Please don't call me Willy!

And may we always stand together,
united in our loyalty.
Two birds made from a common feather:
LIAM and WIL - that's royalty.
