Treasure Island

Kelsey Joe


I remember


I remember Florida
When you were by my side,
Where the sun was warm
Even at night.

I remember Christmas
when you kept me warm,
We watched cartoons
until I passed out to snore.

I remember being at your house
The lake was always fun,
Even though I always swam
From the boat to the shore.

I remember the Sunday
When my mom said to me,
'Your grandpa isn't well,
He's going to die by Wednesday.'

I remember calling a friend and crying
'Why him? He was a good man! ',
and she comforted me
and told me that I can.

'That I can get through it
Maybe he won't die,
That your dad will come home
and tell you he's fine.'

Wednesday came,
I was doing my homework,
When dad called and said
'He has told us goodbye.'

I cried on my homework
I cried myself to sleep,
Everytime I saw the necklace you gave me
It would make me weep.

Saturday came
And I went up to your casket
and held your hands one last time
And told you 'I remember'.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
