Brother Poems

Big Brother and Little Brother Poems

What is a brother's place in a family? To a younger brother or sister, he may be a guide to help traverse the complicated path of growing up. To an older brother, a little brother may be seen as a tag along and pain in the neck. As much as siblings squabble when they are young, this is not a sign that they do not love each other. Most siblings would lay down their life for each other. As children grow up they usually find it easier to get along and relate to each other in rewarding ways.

    A beautiful poem with childhood memories, both positive and negative. The experience of many younger brothers, I guess.

    Poem About 2 Brothers Once So Close

    My brother was always my best friend,
    We would play sports and we'd just pretend.

    Poem Celebrating The Life Of A Brother

    From the depths of my heart, come the words of a brother,
    where our souls and our minds, are like that of no other.
    The spirit of competition, will always be there,
    in the look of our eyes, and the glance of our stare.

    Risking our necks on some great adventure,
    Others would mock our idea of fun,
    Telling tall tales or hiding Gran's dentures.
