I want to give you flowers so that you are happy.
I want you to feel my heart.
I would like to give you toys.
Some sun to keep you warm.
A star so you can sleep calmly and with love.
I would especially like to give you my heart.
By Jocelyn, 1st grade
I am just sitting here on the slide
watching the clouds pass by,
thinking of you. I miss your vibrant
colored shoes. I miss how your elegant
voice said to me, “I love you.”
I miss your brown glossy eyes. I miss
your loose bangs. I miss how you kept me
from danger. I miss how you looked at me
whenever you were mad. You were always
taller than me, like mom and dad.
You are like a dress in a one-of-a-kind store.
If you were here, I would be much happier.
