Uncle Poem

Uncle And Friend

In thankfulness to an uncle who is more than just a relative.

John

© Michaella A. Molinski
To me you're more than an Uncle,
you're truly a great friend.
Someone I could pour my thoughts out to
knowing you'll cherish them to the end.

You've made me laugh,
when I wanted to cry.
You've made me stronger,
when I felt so weak I could die.

Whenever I'm upset I know you're
there with a shoulder to cry on.
Whenever I face a problem and need some help
I know you are one I can rely on.

You've always made me happy,
I hope you can truly see.
You're more than just an Uncle,
you're also a great friend to me.

  • This poem has touched me because it's very similar to what I would write in my poems. Furthermore my uncle was the first one in the first place to inspire me in writing poem he pushed me and look where I have come. All the time I just grab the pen and paper and I get writing and I would love to write a poem for my uncle and give it to him on his birthday and this poem would be the same way I would have wrote it for him but I have to say this poem is fantastic absolutely beautiful

  • I have an uncle who has been there for me since I can remember. I was raised by my grandparents and the first grandchild. I was a single parent when I put myself through school and worked part time. He has helped me when I barely made ends meet and never once turned his back on me even though he had four kids to feed. He is now on dialysis and had to relocate from our small town. I wish, I wish that we were the same blood type so that I would have given him a kidney, to repay for all that he has done for me. I pray for him that one day he may find a donor. xox I love you Uncle Johnny.

  • August 13, 2011, I wrote the above entry and was sad. I now know why, I had 4 uncles at that time and the youngest one passed away suddenly 13 days later due to a heart attack and could not be revived on August 26, 2012. I was closer with my Michael (38) cause we grew up together. My heart was breaking for my grandparents who lost their youngest child and also for my uncles who lost their little brother. I could not cry in front of my grandparents and uncles because I didn't want to make them more sad. I cried when no one saw me but I knew he was there by my side. I remember him as smiling, laughing, telling jokes and always on the go. I understand now why he loved and lived his life to the fullest as God gave him only 38 years on this earth and had 3 kids. We can't change people or criticize them of how they live their lives because maybe it is already written out for them to fulfill their purpose on this earth. Mayko, I will celebrate your 39th birthday on Feb 14-2012 with our family and my 2 kids who love you!
