    Forever Family

    I’m glad my family can be forever.

    Forever Family

    I wanted to create this poem because I really am comforted by the knowledge I have that families are forever. On the first day of fourth grade, my grandma, who lived in my home all my life, passed away. I’m glad to know I have the opportunity to see my grandma and family again in heaven.

    Families Are Forever

    One thing that keeps me going,

    It keeps me feeling strong,

    Is that families are forever,

    And we always get along.

    I love them very dearly

    And know they love me too.

    Heavenly Father is waiting

    With our relatives who

    Just came to earth for bodies

    Or got older and just passed.

    Grannies, grandpas, all ancestors

    Aren’t just history or past.

    They really are still living.

    They haven’t left for good.

    We’ll see them up with God

    In the Heavenly Neighborhood.

    All of them mean something.

    We’re all one family.

    We miss them, yes we do,

    But they’re waiting there for you!
