Family

May 13, 2008
By Britney Bordelon, Simmesport, LA

When monsters would lay beneath my bed,
and scary dreams ran through my head,
When thunder made those sounds I feared,
There you were, my father.
When scuffed-up knees made me cry,
Soft napkins whiped my sad eyes dry,
Persuading me each time I tried,
There you were, my mother.
Who held my hand when I was scared,
I ate candy I should have shared,
The things I did because you dared!
There you were, my sister.
In times of trouble, times of need,
I feel such strength surrounding me,
Without your love I can't succeed,
I love you all, my family.
