Poem

Eugene Field. 1850–1895

Little Boy Blue
THE little toy dog is covered with dust,

But sturdy and staunch he stands;

The little toy soldier is red with rust,

And his musket moulds in his hands.

Time was when the little toy dog was new, 5

And the soldier was passing fair;

And that was the time when our Little Boy Blue

Kissed them and put them there.

 

“Now don’t you go till I come,” he said,

“And don’t you make any noise!” 10

So, toddling off to his trundle bed,

He dreamt of the pretty toys;

And, as he was dreaming, an angel song

Awakened our Little Boy Blue—

Oh! the years are many, the years are long, 15

But the little toy friends are true!

 

Ay, faithful to Little Boy Blue they stand,

Each in the same old place,

Awaiting the touch of a little hand,

The smile of a little face; 20

And they wonder, as waiting the long years through

In the dust of that little chair,

What has become of our Little Boy Blue,

Since he kissed them and put them there.

Video:

Starts with little girl (solena) sitting down and gets a present from a dad.

Moves to shots of Vera playing with the doll with parents arguing in the background. Then the parents end up splitting up during the argument. The girl puts the bear on the stand near bed and kisses it goodnight and says “I love you”. She then hears arguing from her parent in the room next to her, she gets scared and holds the Bears hand as she falls to sleep.

Time laps of bear sitting there.

The girl is older now and the bear is in the same place. The girl is coughing in the shot and doesn’t look well. She dies by the bed holding the Bears hand.
