"...oh, my little soldier boy.....I'll be true to you!"
Yes, I placed him on a pedestal - because it is there that he deserves to be. I saw him at a thrift store, and I'm afraid I left him there. But I couldn't get him out of my mind. So when I went back through the same town two days later, I felt compelled to stop back in to see if he had waited for me.
Indeed, he had!
And he was half price that day!
For $1.35, I made him mine.
I truly hope that it is not wrong to love him.
Because, I must admit that I do.
