I Love You All, My Family

By Shayla S Randolph

When monsters lurked beneath my bed
And scary dreams ran through my head,
When thunder growled those sounds I dread,
There you were,
My father.

When scuffed up knees made me cry,
Soft hankies wiped my sad eyes dry,
Coaxing me each time I tried.
You were always there,
My mother.

Who held my hand when I was scared?
Ate candy that he should have shared?
The things I did because you dared,
My brother.

In times of trouble, times of need,
I feel such strength surrounding me,
Without whose love I can’t succeed.
I love you all, my family.
