My Auntie Is
A poem by Katherine Breanne Parilli
My Auntie is like a sister,
pesky and buggy in so many ways.
Teasing and harassing,
till I want to burry my head beneath the covers
and hide the day away.
My Auntie is like a best friend,
Sharing my likes,
And helping me to enjoy my favorite things.
Talking of pizza and cake until my tummy rumbles,
we enjoy a relaxing day.
My Auntie is family,
close and dear to my heart.
Holding me close when I am sick,
sheltering my eyes when I am afraid,
and picking me up when I fall.
My Auntie is many things,
pesky and troublesome,
a companion true,
But most of all
she is the Auntie whom I love so dear.
