A Poem Inspired by Ryler Dustin’s “Allie”
Missed like when you missed
the bus on the first day of school, and mom
had to drive you there.
Missed like when you made me go
away from your room when you had
your friend come over.
You’re missed when you’re mad
and start to yell because I got you
in trouble. Missed like when you put
my dolls down the toilet. Missed
when you went on a school trip,
and had to go to the hospital
because you broke your arm.
And now you are missed since
you are serving our country
as a Navy soldier.
But you won’t be missed
when you come back home to tell me
your new stories and adventures.
You always have been.
By Fallon, 6th grade
