Mr Bear's Best Day

Mr Bear woke up smiling

With a heart full of cheer

The storms had all passed

Which had left him in fear


As he pulled back the curtains

And saw a new day

Mr Bear felt so thankful

And joy came his way


He opened the window

Where the storm had been found

But today there were birds

And a beautiful sound

One sat on his paw

And wished him good day

Mr Bear whispered “thank you”

As the bird flew away.

He sauntered downstairs

And got out some bread,

Found his favourite cup

In his favourite red


How magic to wake up

Without any cares

A feeling to be cherished

And certainly shared


So he rustled up breakfast

For his favourite Mouse

Who was still happily snoozing

In their cosy wee house.


Mr Bear made her tea

And a small slice of toast

Which he popped on a tray

Next to today’s piece of post


He tapped on the door

As mouse gently stirred

She’d smelt toast being made

And then footsteps were heard

She sat up in bed

And yawned with a smile

This was already the best day

That she’d had for a while


Mr Bear sat beside her

And they sipped on their tea

And spoke of their dreams

And what today could be


When breakfast was finished

They ventured outside

The two of them both

With a spring in their stride


They walked through the forest

And fields full of flowers

They lay in the sunshine

And chatted for hours

As they made their way home

Out wandering too

Were lots of their friends

And their group quickly grew


As they reached Mr Bear’s

The group hugged goodbye

Mr Bear glanced at Mouse

With a twinkly eye


Reluctant to finish

Their magical day,

Mr Bear and wee Mouse

Thought their friends should all stay


So they sat under the stars

Using logs as their seats

Told stories and jokes

With marshmallows and treats


They wished this great day

Wouldn’t come to end

But were thankful for love

And their wonderful friends.
