Have you ever seen a set of wings
on a polar bear?
We know of one, with snowy fur,
that’s got a great big pair.
His ruby eyes and cotton candy nose
made the ladies swoon.
Now he plays in sun-kissed fields,
and sleeps under our very same moon.
And one day we’ll see him again,
and we’ll scratch his velvety ears,
As we meet atop a bridge of colors,
our eyes filled with happy tears.
Until that day, we know
our angel-winged Bear is just beyond sight -
Happy, healthy, and handsome -
and so full of life.
Dedicated to Bear - our little Buddha Buddy and baby polar bear.
