Sister Poem

Long Lost Sister

Thankful for the gift of sisterhood.

My Sister

© Jennifer D. Brock
What you mean to me,
Is more than I can express.
You see, I had no sister when I was little
To call when I was in distress.

When we first met,
We had no clue,
What was getting ready to happen,
Was not completely out of the blue.

God had a plan,
Throughout all the years,
He was making us for each other,
To share life's smiles and tears.

I never could have imagined,
What a sister's love was about,
Until I met you,
And then I really found out.

A sister's love is unconditional,
It's a love has no end,
A sister's love wants the best for each other,
It's a love that will always defend.

Sometimes we may get mad,
Or we may begin to fight,
But that's the fun part about having a sister,
We both think we're always right!

I'm so glad that I did not have,
A sister in the past,
It's made me much more thankful,
For the sister I have at last.

  • I am 39 yrs old and just recently discovered that I had a sister that I knew nothing about. We are developing a relationship and I am growing to love her more each time we speak. This poem strikes home as I believe that God works in mysterious ways and things happen for a reason. He brought us together in our later years so that we can ease the pain that we each felt while we were growing up with very vindictive and mean mothers.

  • At the age of 43 I found out I had eight brothers and sisters that I never knew existed. Out of these siblings are three girls they are 35, 30, and 28. I grew up with no sisters. This poem says exactly how I feel about them. It has been 7 months since I found out about them and I've only met two of the siblings so far, but I know God will find a way to bring the rest of us together. Our father has passed and my mother is passed, but now we have each other.

  • I found out that I had a sister when I was 12 yrs old . I never bothered to look for her, I was just a kid didn't know much. On March 2, 2010, at 5:00 pm, I got a call from my younger sister. I found out my sister and I were going to the same school for 3 yrs and had three classes together. We've been through a lot and we are still trying too make our relationship better. I LOVE my sister so much <3 . Reading this poem reminds me how G-d brought us together after all these years.

  • I don't have a sister just like in the poem, I am the only child of my family not until I met a friend who I didn't expect would be my sister.. I call her "kapatid koh" that's the Filipino version of "my Sister" and I am so very blessed in her because she made me feel how to be loved by a sister and how to love one.

  • I'm 18 years old and in college. My sister is 4 and in preschool. I grew up as an only child, and never thought anything of it, but once my small fry was born I realized that there was something missing in me. There may be 14 years between us but we're best friends. Some of our cousins try picking on her, let's just say they stop right away whenever she says ''sissy''
    My little sister is my life, and I'm so glad to have her. This poem fits us perfectly, we may have waited a long time to find each other, but when we finally ended in the same world together it was the best thing to ever happened to me.

  • I love this poem because it reminds me of me and my sister and how we fight but we can't stay mad at each other for long...sometimes we never argue or we never yell at each other because I love my sister ladonna and I would do anything in the world for her and I would tell her anything, like I would tell her all of my secrets and what I went through and what I go through every day...

    as I said before I love my sister to death and I would do anything in the world for her

    I love you sister :)

  • This poem is actually the carbon copy of words from my heart to my sister. When I read this poem, I immediately sent this poem to her. I don't have a real sister but one year ago I started conversation with my cousin sister. Then I realized what a sister's love is all about. I am thankful to god that I have a sister like her. A sisters love is incomparable, it's the jewel of life, never ever loose it.

    I love my sister more than anyone in my you sister..:)

  • When I was 16 I found out that my mom abandoned my sister. She was found and adopted by her now wonderful family. I am now 31 and have searched for my sister all these years. I found her this last summer and will get to finally meet her this spring. We have had lots of good conversations and I am excited to finally meet her. I am looking for something to put in a birthday card to her as this will be the first birthday since I found out who she was that I will get to send to my sister. :)

  • I'm an only child....but when a cousin of mine got married in August 2010 and I met his wife two weeks after they got married (my mom and I were sick on their wedding day so we got to spend time with them two weeks later) and his wife (who is 16 years older than me) and I hit it off instantly. A few months later we became sisters. She's the big sister I ALWAYS wanted and needed. We've had our share of arguments but she'd never give up on me or stop being there for me. We call each other "hermana" which is Spanish for sister. I'm forever thankful that a mutual friend of theirs introduced them to each other and that my cousin proposed to her and that she accepted the proposal. I only get to see her once or twice a year because they live on the west coast...but we email every day and if I really need her then I can send her a text message. The poem definitely matches my relationship with my "hermana".

  • I was adopted at birth. It was a closed adoption. I had no information regarding my birth family. I am now 35 years old and have just found my birth family by applying for my original birth certificate. I have 8 older siblings....4 sisters and 4 brothers. They have been so accepting of me and I cherish the relationship that I am beginning to have with them. I never understood the importance of having a relationship with your biological siblings until I have been through this experience. I love them dearly and thank you for sharing this poem.

  • I first met my sister in the fall of 1988, my mom had to give her up for adoption when she was 5 months. I didn't know about her till I was about 13. I always wanted a big sister and now I can not imagine my life without her. She is always there when I need her, even at times that I don't really know I do. She is my best friend!! :))

  • I'm adopted and my birth mother had a daughter 6 years before me that I recently found out about last year. I'm 15 and my parents don't want me to have any thing to do with her but I do text her. I think if they kept me from her for this long I should get to meet her in person...

  • August 31, 2012, will always be a day that I will remember for the rest of my life. I am 60 years old and I just found I have six sisters and one brother (biological side) that I have been looking for the last 12 years. I almost gave up looking for them when I decided to give it one more try, and bingo, hit the jackpot through a son of one of my sisters. It seems that we went to the same schools, we know the same people and we lived around the same area, even one of my sister's husbands graduated with me the same school and same year. My sister's mom told them that they had an older sister somewhere. My mom did the same thing, that I had lots of siblings but did not know where. I will meet my sisters in the near future because we live miles apart. GOD always knows when is the right time and place.

  • When I was little I was given away just like my two other brothers. I was only one and my brother Owain was two and my sister was seven but sadly we got parted from the second eldest my brother. My sister would sit there and feed me. But as I grew up to be two, two loving people wanted to adopt me from when I was in my mothers stomach but they said that they were to old but then after another year they allowed it but my sister was taken back by my birth mum because she didn't want those loving people Alan and Michelle to adopt her so those people adopted me and my two other brothers being united with my second eldest sibling was in heaven but then after nine years I started seeing my sister Kyrah and now I'm eleven and only just started to see my sister. It has been the happiest time of my life.
    But she is still in a foster home with a wonderful foster mum and the best thing is that we can see her and I would like to say thank you to my parent now because my mum now has cancer and she still took us in.
