A Poem Inspired by Ryler Dustin’s “Allie”

Big brother,

you’re missed.

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.

Big brother,

you’re missed.

You always have been.

By Fallon, 6th grade
