A Very Special Sister

For many years we’ve shared our lives
One roof we once lived under
Sometimes we laughed sometimes we cried
Through winter storms and thunder
The younger years have faded fast
We’ve gone our separate ways
But through all time our friendship lasts
Our bond in life remains
As summer brings the happy times
The autumn winds will whisper
A closer friend I’d never find
That the one I call my Sister.

The Woman I Call Sister - Merissa Gertmenian

The woman I call sister
Is someone who is there
The woman I call sister
Is someone who always cares.

The woman I call sister
Can make me smile when times are blue
The woman I call sister
Is someone very true.

The woman I call sister
By choice, is my best of friend
The woman I call sister
will be there till the end.

The woman I call sister
Is the blessing from God above
The woman I call sister
Is the sister that I’ll always love.

Letters to My Sister - Angela Vasquez-Giroux

:: Click to Read ::

Composed as a series of letter to a family member serving in Iraq, Angela Vasquez-Giroux's first poetry chapbook is a vivid evocation of the fear, displacement, and uncertainty that war imposes on those who are left behind. Through images of fragmentation and fragility- misreading of scripture, partial glimpses of loved one in a news report - LETTERS TO MY SISTER speaks of the challenges of survival, both for those in field and at home.

Hindi Poems for Sister : ‘दी’

:: For Elder Sister ::

बंद आंखों से, लाल अंधियारे में
देखा एक ख्वाब था मैनें
पलक खुले और मैं स्वयं को पाउं
तेरे ममत्व, तेरे स्नेह तले

हो न सका ये ख्वाब पूरा
पलक खुली पर तुम न थी वहां
घूरा था सबको मैनें
मासूमियत भरी अपनी निगाहों से

जब मैनें पहला कदम बढाया
तब भी न पाया तुमको वहां
चाहत थी मेरी भी कि
मां संग थामो तुम हाथ मेरा

जब लड़ख़ड़ाती जुबां से मां कहा
थी खुशी पर कुछ अधूरी
इंतजार किया कि तुम आओ वहां
पर यह जुबां ‘दी’ न कह पाई  कभी

अब था समझदार पर मासूम फिर भी
दुनिया को देखता,दुनिया को जानता
देखा बहनों को भाइयों का हाथ थामे
पर तुम न थी वहां हाथ बढानें

गुजरा वक्त यूं हीं बिन तुम्हारे
सूने हाथों, नम ख्वाबों में
मांगा खुदा से बस यहीं कि
हो मेरी बहना जो कभी थामे हाथ मेरा

देर से ही सही पर सुनी उसने
आज हुई यह चाह पुरी
आज है तेरा ममत्व, तेरा स्नेह मुझ पर
अब मैं भी हूं भाग्यशाली कहनें को ‘दी’ 

By - भरत चौधरी (प्रियंका दी के लिए)

:: And for Younger Sister ::

How can a delicate flower remain?
When His unloving winds impair Her stem
The sun fades, the sky’s black, with pouring rain
And yet still she retreats right back to him.
His sun rays burn and her petals do fall.
She smiles but no delight behind her eyes.
She blocks his storm, but can not block it all.
Her fragile green leaves are frail from his lies.
Yet his rain pours before her stem drops dead
Mature, and lovely she sways like a queen.
A stunning flower, with many tears shed.
Any time, on my shoulder she can lean.
But just like me, she stays for the twister.
I’ll never change the love for my sister.

Quotations for Sisters - 6

One of the best things about being an adult is the realization that you can share with your sister and still have plenty for yourself.  ~Betsy Cohen

We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar.  We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws.  ~Rose Macaulay

Sisters may share the same mother and father but appear to come from different families.  ~Author Unknown

Sister to sister we will always be,
A couple of nuts off the family tree.
~Author Unknown

We acquire friends and we make enemies, but our sisters come with the territory.  ~Evelyn Loeb

Sisters are blossoms in the garden of life.  ~Author Unknown

We may look old and wise to the outside world.  But to each other, we are still in junior school.  ~Charlotte Gray

Whatever you do they will love you; even if they don't love you they are connected to you till you die.  You can be boring and tedious with sisters, whereas you have to put on a good face with friends.  ~Deborah Moggach

You keep your past by having sisters.  As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.  ~Deborah Moggach

It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time.  How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.  ~Pam Brown

Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer.  ~Louise Glück

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.  She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.  She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.  She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.  Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.  ~Barbara Alpert

Quotations for Sisters - 5

Our roots say we're sisters, our hearts say we're friends.  ~Author Unknown

Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled.  ~Jane Mersky Leder

Our siblings.  They resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long.  ~Susan Scarf Merrell

Sibling relationships - and 80 percent of Americans have at least one - outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship.  They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust.  ~Erica E. Goode, "The Secret World of Siblings," U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994

Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.  ~Pamela Dugdale

Sisters share the scent and smells - the feel of a common childhood.  ~Pam Brown

A sister shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.  ~Author Unknown

Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize.  Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks.  Borrow.  Break.  Monopolize the bathroom.  Are always underfoot.  But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there.  Defending you against all comers.  ~Pam Brown

Between sisters, often, the child's cry never dies down.  "Never leave me," it says; "do not abandon me."  ~Louise Bernikow

It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!  ~Author Unknown

Sisterhood is powerful.  ~Robin Morgan

Sisters don't need words.  They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief.  Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling.  ~Pam Brown

Quotations for Sisters - 4

Elder sisters never can do younger ones justice!  ~Charlotte M. Yonge

A toast once heard:  "To my big sister, who never found her second Easter egg until I'd found my first."  ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.  ~Isadora James

To the outside world we all grow old.  But not to brothers and sisters.  We know each other as we always were.  We know each other's hearts.  We share private family jokes.  We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys.  We live outside the touch of time.  ~Clara Ortega

The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend.  ~Cali Rae Turner

An older sister helps one remain half child, half woman.  ~Author Unknown

An older sister is a friend and defender - a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights.  And sorrows too.  ~Pam Brown

There is no better friend than a sister.  And there is no better sister than you.  ~Author Unknown

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.  ~Susan Scarf Merrell

I don't believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers.  It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage.  Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.  ~Maya Angelou

A sibling may be the keeper of one's identity, the only person with the keys to one's unfettered, more fundamental self.  ~Marian Sandmaier

In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips.  ~Author Unknown

When mom and dad don't understand, a sister always will.  ~Author Unknown
