I noticed you looking so forlorn and alone the other day and realized that I have never expressed my true feelings for you.
Thinking back, special memories arise to the surface of how you made my life bearable. You were like Jesus in a body, and even after all these years, I want to acknowledge how much you have meant to me.
Tears cascaded off my face like a drippy faucet, and my breaking heart sobbed as I held onto you. You said nothing, but you were a comfort to me. I would yell out to you in my rage, but you calmly listened without uttering a word.
I would sit in my chair; arms securely wrapped around you, and gaze upon a drawing of Jesus embracing a weeping woman. That woman represented me. As I held tightly to you, it seemed that Jesus was holding onto a broken me.
Sometimes, you would gaze at me with those deep-set brown eyes, and I would feel listened to and cared for. Your soft body was such a comfort against my face as it absorbed the tears.
You were my best friend.
How can I ever thank you for being there for me in my time of need? No matter how devastated I was, you were there to comfort me. I still have feelings for you, but I no longer need your special brand of comfort.
Mr. Huggims, you are the best stuffed rabbit friend I have ever had, and I will continue to appreciate you and give you a place of honor on top of my bed.You will always be loved as you have made me feel loved. Than you, Mr. Huggims.
