Best Summer of My Life This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.


A word no one likes to hear

It’s filled my life

Taught me lessons of love and dying

Taught me about myself


It brings families together, or breaks them apart

Or it can do both.


A word that can change everything

It filled my summer, made it better

Brought me happiness and fun

Brought some much needed time


It gave me a new best friend, and

Gave me back my grandma.


A word that can bring laughter

It filled my heart, helped me love

Showed me what it truly means to live

Showed me to enjoy my time


It brings some trips to the hospital,

And itchy skin.


A word that can drain you

It filled my time, especially at night

Strained my muscles and left me tired

Strained my emotions


It always supplies much family time,

And many chances to learn the family secrets


A word that brings hope

It filled the prayers of hundreds around the world

Supplied a way to build and move on

Supplied a second chance


It brings about long tiresome days,

And screaming Kenny Chesney in the car.


A word that is no longer foreign to me

It filled me with a desire

Needed to find a place, any place to help

Needed to try to make up for lost time


Most times it brings death,

But it can also bring new life and a great summer.
