"My Brother is Leaving for College," Keilaa-Demi De La Cruz, Fifth Grade, Mott Hall School

My brother is almost leaving for college


     I feel like a sunflower that’s missing all its pedals


       I do not want him to leave,


         He is the one that lets the sun shine on me


           He was there when I was born


              He was there when I learned to walk


                He was there through it all


                         


                                               I do not know what I will do when he is gone


                                            When he is not with me,


                                        I do not feel alive


                                         He is always busy playing basketball


                                       But, then he comes home


                                      What will I do when he is playing basketball


                                     And goes to his dorm room


 


He was the one that played games with me


  When I was upset


     He is the game I play when I am upset


       He always knows what to do when I am hurt


         Every pedal on me is unique


           He is the tall one that is always rught by my side
