My Dearest Friend, Fred

My Dearest Friend, Fred
Form: Saraband Sonnet

Through darkest nights I had a friend
To hold my hand and wipe my tears
My broken heart was his to mend.
His name was Fred, my special mate
We came together, it was fate
The other toys I've put away
But Fred, he's here with me to stay.
My childhood secrets we would share
The hopes and dreams, and deepest fears
When no one else was there to care.
The only bear to hold my heart
How years have worn your seams apart
I've mended you from toe to head
To keep you near my dearest Fred
