Poem for a Teddy Bear Made from Clothing

I used to have a copy of a poem to attach to a home made teddy bear. One made from deceased grandparents clothing for the grandchildren. I only remember the last line, "Remember, she loved you too." I want to make two bears for my nieces and cannot find the poem. I hope someone has a copy and will forward it to me.

I found this poem online. I am not sure if it is the correct one or not. Hope this helps.

Burden Teddy Bear

I'm not a very fancy bear,

I'm plain and rather small.

Even so, someone who loves you

Said I should come to call.

I brought my favorite blanket,

That I snuggle when I'm sad...

It's a present from my Granny,

Made for days when things seem bad.

My Granny always told me,

"Life's like a patchwork quilt...

Just give Jesus all the pieces,

And he'll make a pretty quilt."

Sometimes I don't see the pattern,

Sometimes he seems far away,

Then I clutch my favorite blanket

And I pray and pray and pray.

Though I don't have all the answers,

For I'm just a "Burden Bear"

I've been sent here on a mission

From someone who really cares.

When you see me, please remember...

You are in her thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for the poem that may accompany the keepsake teddybear! The poem I was recalling actually is only about 4 lines long, would still like to have that one. However I shall hang on to this one for now! Thank you so much!

Here is a poem that my Mom's cousin put on a Memory Quilt hope it is the one your looking for:

I was once warn by

Someone so dear

Who through loving memory

Will always be here

So when you hug me close

To you just remember

She loved you too
