Favorite Quote:
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

As I see him in the coffin
I start to cry.
I touch his cold body
And the hairs on my neck stnd up
As I reach for a tissue,
There is a hand instead
I look over to see who it is
It is my Dad's angel
I ask why he is there
He says I am here because I told
you I would always be by yourside.

I wrote this piece in seventh grade. That summer I entered it in a contest and soon got it published in a book.
