    Today was the hardest day of my life. I attended my grandma's funeral. Seeing my mum so upset broke my heart. Although my grandma was 94, no time is ever a good time to say goodbye. Grandma, may you be happy tonight as you rest in peace side by side with Grandpa. Going to miss you so much. Love you with all my heart.

    God put years in my life; she put life in my years...my daughter! When she gurgled in my arms as a newborn, I was ecstatic! When her baby lips called "mamma," my heart did cartwheels. When she clutched my thumb tight on her first day of school, I felt a pang too. With her achievements, my chest swelled with pride. With her disappointments, I was crestfallen too. Now, watching the chrysalis emerging into a butterfly, a rainbow of emotions envelops me. Truly, as a daughter grows, a mother glows!

    My grandmother (Aparna Sengupta) left us on March 12, 2017, on the day of Holi. The gods welcomed her in their garden after a year of extreme pain and suffering. Two years have passed, but I still miss my granny a lot. She was the person with whom I spent the long lonely hours. She was the person with whom I used to sleep. Her presence was the relief, the place of confession that my young mind searched for. I missed her for the last two years, I miss her today, and I will always miss her in my life.

    My acrostic poem is about the impression that my father-in-law made on me. He was, hands down, one of my heroes in life. He will be greatly missed, and no one will ever take his place.

    Lessons From A Father Acrostic Poem

    in Father Poems

    Facing some of the toughest times in life
    Always seem a little easier with someone by your side
    Two has always been better than one.
    He taught me that and taught me how to have fun.
    Everyone should be leaning on the other, not pointing fingers and blaming one another.
    Rest easy, fly high, until we meet again, I've never say goodbye, I'll just say "until then."

    My name is Patricia, and I am the eighth of nine children. My parents taught us growing up that God and family are there for you when no one else is. As a result of our upbringing, we are a very close knit family. My family has stood by my side through the good times and the bad, as I have been there for them. Without their support I am not sure I would be where I am today. My family is comprised of not only my parents, brothers and sisters, but also my true and loyal friends.

    It is an Acrostic poem that spells out FAMILY. I'm a shy person who doesn't like talking to people much, or simply put, I'm usually lonely and emotional too. But my sister and my parents still do love me for the person I am and encourage me any way possible. So in this poem, I wanted to show and prove to others that no matter what happens, the only people who'll always love you is your family. They are an irreplaceable existence.

    MOTHER, I want you to know I love you so.
    YOUR'E missed beyond belief, for you will never know.

    MEMORY is what God gave to us; you are my hero.
    OFFERING peace, love and one day soon a touch to show
    TRUTH is what you always taught; sometimes it is hard to swallow.
    HEAVEN is now your home, somewhere over the rainbow.
    EXCEEDING my selfish wants, Mama I live in your shadow.
    REALITY is here to stay as I scream your name on my pillow.

    MISSING you Mama, I sometimes get lost in sorrow.
    YOUR voice, your smile and loving ways are something that pierces my soul as I bellow.

    FRIENDSHIP is what I miss the most.
    REGAINING my confidence to carry on.
    INSPIRATION is what you gave, keeping your memory alive
    EVERY
    NIGHT and
    DAY!

    My brother and I shared some great adventures when we were young, but as we grew older, we may have been guilty of trying to out-do each other. We would always have a laugh about it though.

    Brothers - Game For A Laugh

    Brother Acrostic Poem

    in Brother Poems

    Back in the day when we were young,
    Risking our necks on some great adventure,
    Others would mock our idea of fun,
    Telling tall tales or hiding Gran's dentures.
    Hungry bellies fueled our ambition.
    Each of us choosing a professional path,
    Receiving awards and peer recognition.
    Sibling rivals we may be, but we're always game for a laugh.

    This acrostic poem is about the unconditional love of a mother. I imagine my mother's love as a weeping willow tree from the backyard of my childhood home, providing shade and shelter beneath its boughs. The bark of that trunk has collected many marks and scars over the years. I imagine that a mother's heart works the same way, feeling her children's pain as her own and holding onto each heartache. And no matter how far I go, I will always want to return to the shelter of that familiar tree.

    Mother Acrostic Poem Unconditional Love

    in Mother Poems

    My worries hang heavy on her boughs
    Our scars look the same, carved into her forgiving bark.
    This world only knows change, but her roots are unmoving.
    Her hurt is mine, and mine is written onto her heart.
    Even when I leave to go touch each corner of the earth, I'll always
    Return to rest in the shelter of her loving arms.

    My Sister Is Loving

    Acrostic Poem For Sister

    in Family Poems for Kids

    Moaning all day long
    Yapping at every bad thing I do

    Super crazy hair in the morning
    I get so angry I could sue
    So I pull at her crazy hair
    Tickle her till she wees
    End the fighting horrors
    Remember how much she means

    In the end we both make up
    Say sorry about what we did

    Learn about loving each other
    Overwriting bad things we hid
    Vowing never to fight
    Identifying what we've said
    Not living up to that promise
    Giving a tear when one of us falls dead

    Father's Day Acrostic Poem

    in Father's Day Poems

    Fathers are fun - and serious too!
    And you learn more from them than you do at school.
    Think of all the good times you've had.
    How would it be without your dad?
    Everything would be harder with no mentor for growth.
    Reflect on the man who loves you the most.
    Soon will come the day for you to fill his shoes.

    Do you think your dad would accept an excuse?
    Always try your best, that's what he would say.
    Yes, think of your dad on this Father's Day!
