Sister Poem

Sisters And Step-Sister Are Everything You Need Poem

My name is Asia, and I have seven siblings. Three of them are biological, two of them are step-sisters, and two of them are adopted. We had a single mom for many years, and growing up was tough. In order to make our lives work, we had to become very close and depend on each other. I value my family above everything else in my life. I consider myself lucky to have such a big family that loves each other as much as we do.

What can you say about a sister who
Has everything? Laughter, life, love,
Smiles, tears, enthusiasm, spark, knowledge,
Spunk, and to top it all off, beauty.

A sister isn't just a sibling!
She is a whole world.
The things she touches are amazing.  The love
She shares is beautiful.
And her encouragement is spectacular.

To have a sister doesn't make you special,
To know your sister makes you invincible.
The bond sisters share is enlightening. 
The love they give to each other is magnificent.

To look into your sister's eyes and know
What she is thinking isn't a miracle; it's natural.
To see her smile warms your heart. To hear her talk
Soothes your soul. To feel her heartbeat in you is special.

They say sisters are from cradle to grave,
But I believe that it is the in between that counts.
When she takes the rap for something you did,
She doesn't need a thanks, she does it because she cares.

When she sits up till 3:00 AM with you,
Even if she has to get up at 7:00 AM,
She doesn't feel exhausted, she feels cleansed.

When you two cry together till your eyes are all puffy,
She isn't just sad, she believes that it cures the heart.
When she picks out your first prom dress, or brings you
Your first flowers, and when she buys you a card because
You had a bad day, she is glad that she could help.

A sister's word of encouragement or warning
Is always taken to heart. When she explains
How to handle a boy at school, or how to
Talk to mom, she's touched that you came to her.

When she can sympathize with you
Because she's been there, it's comforting.
When she can share your dreams with you,
It's encouraging. When she beats you up
Because you're a brat, it's learning.

Sisters can do anything. Together they
Will conquer the world. But when it's
All said and done, she will hold you hand
Because she's proud to be your sister.

So, if you are blessed to have a sister through blood,
Be thankful. And if you're all alone, grab the first precious girl
In your life, and make her your sister.
Sisters are everything you need
And a whole lot more.

I agree too. I love my sister for the way she is and nothing else.

I agree because I have a sister who I truly love inside and out. And nothing can separate us but the will of the other.
