Fun Poem About Mixed Feelings For An Older Brother
Of all the burdens I must bear,
My brother's number one.
Our parents really messed up there.
They've raised an awful son.
He's lazy, stubborn, rough and mean
And thinks he's boss of me.
The biggest grouch you've ever seen
And greedy as can be.
His constant teasing makes me sore.
He does it just for spite.
He cheats and brags and, furthermore,
He tickles when we fight.
Unless he stops, I swear someday
I'll punch his ugly face.
And if they'd let me have my way,
I'd shoot him into space.
But other times he's not so bad.
He's taught me lots of games.
He gave me toys and books he had
And calls me funny names.
He helps me when my homework's hard
And finds me when I hide.
He built the treehouse in our yard
And lets me play inside.
He laughs at every joke I tell
And gives me good advice.
He knows when I'm not feeling well
And treats me extra nice.
So, all in all, I'd have to say
It's better in the end
To let the no-good nuisance stay.
My brother is my friend.Latest Shared Story
A beautiful poem with childhood memories, both positive and negative. The experience of many younger brothers, I guess.
My Great Grandfather And His Life's Work
Great Grandpa is a wise old man who says he's ninety-four.
He tells me that he lost his leg fighting in some war.
When I was just a little tot with eyes and nose still runny,
He swears that he forgot my name, so now he calls me Sonny.
Great Grandpa is a carpenter; he makes things out of wood,
Chairs and stairs and pegs and legs; gee, I wish I could.
He has saws and tools and tapes and rules in the shed where he does work.
Most times he's out there late at night with his dear old helper, Turk.
Together they talk of good old days, 'bout things they used to do,
And sometimes they just kick around what are lies and what is true.
Once at breakfast, I asked my gramps when he learned his trade.
He said, "Sonny, I'm very proud to say it was down in second grade."
"Gramps," I said, "Now that's a fib; you weren't but seven or eight.
A boy can't be a carpenter at such an early date."
Grandpa winked and took a swig of cider for his thirst.
"Why, sure you can; it's easy Sonny, after nine straight years in first!"
We laughed and then he took a nap; his skin grew pale and lighter.
I loved his wrinkled face and brow, this great old freedom fighter.
He had a restful sleep awhile snoring soft and steady.
I wonder if Great Grandpa knows I'm missing him already.Latest Shared Story
Balter's poem reminds me of my own grandfather whom I lost 49 years ago when he was 94. I remember his two habits very lucidly. He was a frugal eater. He used to weigh his food every time...
Poem About Spending Time With Grandpa
My Grandpa and I do a lot of things together,
But fishing with my Grandpa is the best ever.
I love going to the lake when the sky is all blue.
I love riding in my Grandpa's boat, too.
The next trip to the lake I don't want to miss.
Just being with my Grandpa is better than catching fish.Latest Shared Story
Love your poem about fishing with your Grandpa. There are millions of fish in the oceans and ponds, but being with your Grandpa is a beautiful bond! Enjoy every memory with him; it's priceless!
Whenever I see your sweetest smile,
My pain and sorrow are gone for a while.
Whenever I get mad because you're so unruly,
You'll just hug me and say, "I'm sorry!"
You've got a lot of questions.
You have some wonderful visions!
My little nephew, let your imagination soar;
Let your spirit travel afar...
Spread your wings of generosity;
Open your heart to the wretched and needy!
And you'll discover the rainbow
Of hope that's within you...
A mom is a person to stand right
beside you until the very end.
She'll always be there for you,
no matter where or when.
A mommy will care for you.
She'll be right by your side.
She wants to be with you
when you need to run and hide.
A mom is like a superhero.
She'll always be there for you,
and when you need her the most,
she'll always come through.
A mother is like a shining star,
shining through the night,
a big beautiful brightness
that helps you when you're in fright.
A mother is like a present
you get on Christmas morning.
She's fun, joyful, and caring,
and she's rarely ever boring.Latest Shared Story
It's a loving and inspiring poem. I loved it. The best poem I've ever read!
6. From DadA Dad's Love For His Children
I never thought I could love someone
The way that I love you.
I'm completely fascinated
With everything you do.
I don't regret a moment with you,
Whether good or bad.
You have made my life complete,
The best life a guy could have.
You might not ever notice
Everything I do,
But everything I'm doing
Is for no one else but you.
My goal in life is simple.
It's to be your father first.
To protect, defend, and love you
When you are at your worst.
I know when you grow older
You won't want me anymore.
If you ever need me, though,
I'll be waiting at the door.
Promise you will come to me
With any problem that you have.
I'll always be right here for you.
I love you both! Love, DadLatest Shared Story

This woman as beautiful as can be.
She's always been there for me.
Yeah, she's my mother, my best friend too.
Without her in my life,
I wouldn't know what to do.
Her heart made of gold, giving love
so freely; can't be bought or sold.
No matter who you are or what you do,
She's there to listen and help you through.
Can't express how great she is to me.
Without her, know not where I'd be.
No one like her, my best friend, my mother.
8. BoysPoem About The Adventures Of Little Boys
Bullseyes and targets, marbles and darts.
Little green bugs and bicycle parts.
Frogs in their pockets, worms in their shirt.
A boy is a boy for all he is worth.
Cowboys and Indians, Gene Autry boots.
Guns in their holsters that are sure to shoot.
Big mud puddles, rocks in their shoes,
A chip on their shoulder, a black eye or two.
Little red wagon, scraped up chins,
Scuffed up pants, and old tin cans.
A laugh, a holler, a tear, a shout.
Into mischief but truly a scout.
Old clubhouses, flying a kite,
Up a tree, a fall on the bike.
Skinned up knees, bruises, and cuts.
A boy is a boy when his dukes are up
A Funny Poem For My Sister
Sometimes you drive us all crazy.
Sometimes me more than others.
But sometimes you yell
and kick at nothing for no reason.
Tell me, little sis, what are we going to do with you?!
I keep on telling myself,
"I wanted a sister, not an alien!"
Only to have mother tell me you are human.
I laugh as you walk in with underwear on your head!
Now it's mother's turn to say,
"Oh, what are we going to do with you?"
But sometimes, when it's bedtime,
you can be the sweetest thing.
I find it adorable when you snuggle
with your small teddy bear.
And I can't help but say,
"What are we going to do with you?"Latest Shared Story

10. Open ArmsMy Father And Me
You're the one with open arms
When the darkness closes in.
When the shadows come and the nightmares make it hard to sleep,
You're always there to chase them all away.
You were there with every skinned knee and every time I cried.
When I messed up, you were there to show me what I did wrong.
When you went to work in your big truck,
I waited patiently at the window for my daddy to arrive.
As I got older and wanted different things,
The one thing that never changed
Was running into my daddy's arms.
Memories Of Baking With Mom
Momma's in the kitchen
making muffins for me.
There's eggs, raisins, milk
And white powdery stuff I see.
She says it's flower,
but doesn't look the same.
With all those cups and bowls around,
it looks like a fun game.
Momma says if I help her
there'll be a tasty prize.
She'll stick some batter in the oven,
and I can watch it rise.
I'll watch it slowly grow
from sticky stuff to muffins.
How that happens, I don't know/
It is by magic somethings.
Then a muffin I'll gobble
up into my little tummy.
Those muffins will disappear
like magic, and so yummy.
All tucked up and snug in bed
as angels stand guard above your head,
Mommy will kiss away your fears.
She'll stroke your hair and dry your tears.
She softly sings a lullaby
about the stars up in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle star so bright,
shining down on us tonight.
Her breath is warm upon your face
as you lie still in her embrace.
With sleepy eyes you gaze at mom
as the moon comes up to replace the sun.
Tomorrow will be another day
where you'll have fun, laugh, and play.
But sleep for now, and Mommy will sing a song for you
and you will smile the whole way through.
She gently holds your hand in hers, your fingers wrapped around her thumb.
These are treasured moments as she waits for sleep to come.
Her voice is but a whisper now; her tone is soft and true,
for there is nowhere in the world she'd rather be than lying here with you.
Poem About A Little Sister
I have a little sister.
She bothers me a lot.
When we get in trouble,
She laughs and never gets caught.
When I have friends over,
She bothers him or her.
Then she runs out laughing,
Thinking she's an emperor.
When I am mad at her,
You can hear me scream for a mile.
But when she is nice to me,
You will see me smile!
15. Breaking DayPoem About A Naughty Kid
Today, I broke everything I touched
My own toothbrush
I smashed my sister's favorite cup,
Lost her bracelet for good luck
I even crushed a chair of timber,
Where my father reads and lingers
I ruined mother's chicken soup,
Too much salt in there I scooped
Spattered rice on the kitchen floor,
Drew pink heart shapes on the wall,
Broke my crayons,
Tore all papers,
When my Nana napped I woke her.
With all the broken scoops and piles,
I have shredded everyone's smiles
But then before bedtime they hugged me
I'm their baby,
They still love me!Latest Shared Story

16. GranddaddyPoem Wishing A Sick Grandfather Well
You are the best.
I love you with mind and spirit
And all the rest.
I heard you had cancer.
That's what mom told me.
Just trust in the Lord
And get your surgery.
For Granddaddy, I love you,
And you can't be replaced.
You're always in my heart,
And that can't be erased.
Child's Poem For Mother's Day
Mom, today's your special day,
And you need to take a rest.
I'll do everything for you
To make it the best.
Mom, you're sweet,
And you mean the world to me.
You do every little thing
You're too loving and kind
To do so much work.
I'll always help out
Instead of being a jerk.
Valentine's Day Poem For Dad
Daddy, I love you

you need me to teach you to play.
So smile 'cause I love you

Positive Divorce Poem From Child's Perspective
This is my life:
My parents are split up.
I can't believe they gave up.
My life isn't the same.
It is different and plain.
This is so different than the life we had together.
I thought that we would last forever.
Instead of feeling crabby,
Now I am happy.
Now their lives have just begun.
I wonder what their lives are going to become.
But now I have two families, and that is cool,
Compared to a lot of my friends at my school.
So I am not the only one who feels this way,
So I just wanted to say
No matter what, they support me and they love me.
I just want them to be very happy.
This is my life, and I am very glad.
This is the life with my mom and dad.
