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,
When scuffed up knees made me cry,
Soft hankies wiped my sad eyes dry,
Coaxing me each time I tried.
You were always there,
Who held my hand when I was scared?
Ate candy that he should have shared?
The things I did because you dared,
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.
