I Remember Poem

An I Remember poem brings to mind memories you have about SOMEONE SPECIAL IN YOUR LIFE (parents, siblings, grandparents, aunt or uncle, coach, teacher, etc.). The poem follows an AABB pattern. Each stanza is a rhyming couplet.

Here is an example of an I Remember poem:

Grandma, I remember

Picking ten-cent store material for pants

Radio playing Honky Tonk Man and getting to dance

Papa cutting sugar cane for me

Rum and Coca Cola playing on the porch with glee

Modeling with Mama the new clothes you bought

Yelling down the street for Papa within earshot

Worrying for you when the porch swing did break

Swimming in that big old creek scared about a snake

My finger choosing into whose bed Id leap

You staying awake until I fell asleep

Making mud pies in the field

Always blocking pain like a shield

Loving you more than youll ever know

Feeling the love you continue to show.

I love you,

Michelle
