I always wanted a friend that size
smaller, like Tom Thumb.
Someone I could share secrets with
and carry around in my pocket.
Had a teddy bear that size once
arms, head, and legs all moved
(worth a fortune now)
loved him just for being there
but in the chess-piece moves of life
somewhere in time, I lost him.
