Grandparent Poem

I am just 11 and I enjoy writing poems. I have a book full and this is my favorite. It's about all the things that me and my grandpa used to do together. So all of you out there with a're lucky. I hope that you all like it.

I Miss You

© Courtney Sauve
I am just eleven,
And already you are gone to heaven.

The smiles, the laughter,
I'll remember forever.

We would spend days in your rocking chair,
With your fingers going through my hair.

When I was just about two,
You gave me my favorite teddy, Nou-Nou.

Now when I lay my head at night,
I pray and wish that you were still by my sight.

I love you with all my heart,
And that will never fall apart.

I love you,
I admire you...

But most of all...
I miss you.

Courtney S.
