Sister Poem

I had to write a poem for an English project, so I chose my sister as my subject. This poem really talks abut my sister's heart problem that she was born with. She will soon have to have a heart transplant at the age of 24. That's why I try to emphasize that it's her heart that I want to keep beating, not some one else's just in her body. This poem is dedicated to you, Sarah Beara. Love, Rachel Wachel

My Sister, My Love


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009 with permission of the Author.

My sister, my friend, I must confess
I do not know how much time you have left.
How long will YOUR heart keep beating
before that faithful doctor's meeting?

I always knew something was wrong.
and you told me that the doctors didn't expect you to live this long.
I want to thank you for not beating around the bushes.
Mom and Dad...all they did was try to cushion.

I remember you telling me that you wanted a brother,
and for a sister I always wanted another.
We used to yell, we used to fight.
Now our love is stronger than ten men's might.

Your first year off to college I didn't care.
Now that you're back, when you're gone my days lose all their flair.

My sister, I must tell you that sometimes I can't make the green leave my eye.
Everyone loves you, I can't deny.
You tell me you're not perfect, and I know that's true,
but your imperfections make you perfect with everything you do.

You always know when something's wrong.
Our talks have sometimes lasted all night long.

I can't say, "No one's listening, anyway,"
because you have let me cry on your shoulder.
You always hold me till it's over.
Your arms are like my shelter,
my hiding place forever.
