'Teddy Bear' (A Poem by an EPS Foster Carer)

 
Teddy Bear
 
What then brings this child to my door
What twist of faith left his feet on the floor
No kind hand was he ever shown
And now… as dark steals light, with his eyes full of fright. His tiny hands trembling
Clutching his Teddy Bear…
Worst for the wear…
His question ??? Does anyone really care
Or in all the world is it really just me ME and MY Teddy Bear
 
- Anna Marie Buckley
 
 
'Teddy Bear' was written by a Fiver Rivers foster carer in relation to children placed through the Out of Hours EPS service.
