Sister Poem

In thankfulness to a great sister who has given so much of herself to her sister

My Sister, My Friend

© Leann Stiegman
To me you are an angel in disguise.
Full of intuition, intelligent, and wise.
Always giving and helping through
Good times and bad.
You are the best friend I've ever had.
If I had one wish it would surely be
To give you as much as you've given to me.
Though I've put our relationship through some cloudy days,
You've been my sunshine in so many ways.
Through trials and tests, right by me
You stood,
And gave me your hand whenever you could.
Thank you so much my sister, my friend
My gratitude for you has no end.

  • Wow... what can I say about this one... it has touched my heart in so many ways... my sister is almost 21 years older then I am. I only have one sister and she is the best.. she is always there for me when I need her... when I was growing up and I was going through those awkward teenage years she helped me through them.. and the nights when I cried for my dad she was there...I love you sis, and I am so thankful that you are my sister..

  • This is great. I love poetry, and my sister just turned 22 and I needed something to go with what I gave her. This is what's going to go with it.

  • I love these poems because they really soften my heart when I read them. I have two sisters and I am the youngest and all of our names starts with the letter A. We call ourselves triple A and we do a lot of things together. My older sister just went off to college and I miss her like crazy but I realized something. By her being away, made me love her even more. By missing her I began to realize that she meant more to me than I ever realized. So these poems really touch my heart. thanks so much.

  • Loved this poem it was touching and inspirational. As I read it the thought of my little sis came to mind. Had to send it to her and choose to give it to her as a Valentine gift couldn't be any better. Thank you

  • My brother emailed this poem to me on one of those days that was just not good. It reminded me that family is all that's really ever needed. I spent the rest of the day very happy because I knew how much family cared.

  • I'm 10 years old my big sis left to move away. I always thought she would come back one day but my adventure still goes even though she is far away I will always love and hold her in my arms and tell her I love her, she is the best, even though we fight who cares she's my life. I love her so much like a parent or aunt she is one of a kind.

  • I love this poem I don't have any sisters but I have a cousin that used to live with me and got really close to me. She used to go to college here but then got married and went away and now she even has a kid! I was remembering her the other day and I wanted to send her something so I thought I would re write it and send it to her.

  • I have six sisters but none of them are talking to me. I recently got married and I have a wonderful sister-in-law this poem makes me think of her. I miss my family but since my mother died in 93 my family has falling apart I love to read these poems makes me feel like there is some love left in this world. And I don't feel so alone.

  • I will be giving this to my sister, I am going to write it out very nice and frame it.
    My mom and dad are past away and I became very sick with liver problems and had to have a liver transplant at the age of 49, my sister is 3 years older than myself. She was my backbone and full support through it all. I was in intensive care for 2 1/2 weeks on life support not knowing if I was going to make it. But my sister was there and she gave me so much power to fight this and I did. Was in the hospital for almost 7 months and she was there each and every day, well it has almost been a year now and she is still there 100% of the time and I am not doing to bad. She is a wonderful person and I love she so very much. I am sure I would not be here today if it wasn't for her. Thank you my sister Shelley and I love you with all my heart........Susan

  • WOW! This is poem is what describes me and my sister. She has always been there for me even though I haven't made it so easy for her to be, she has been the big sister any one could wish for. She is my best friend. The one I don't know what I would do with out. She's my whole world. She will be gone soon put on her own and I don't know what I'm gonna do. This poem is us, who we are together as a whole. I love her with all my heart and soul.
