My Magic Box

My shiny pink box with
the pictures of my grandpa.
The pictures with his smell
that makes me remember him.

In my box, I will put…
My baby things like
my pillow, my shoes, my clothes,
and my blanket. With my
smooth little things I wish
I was a baby like I
was before.

In my box, I will put…
The shiny and rough clothes
that someone special gave me.
My grandparents gave me
the clothes with their smell
and love. That I love
and will always have.

By Elizabeth, 4th grade
