Poems for Sisters

Having a sister in your life can either be a wonderful or terrible experience, depending on your relationship. If you have an older sister and you are a girl, she can often show you how to navigate the way through some of the more difficult areas of growing up. This is also true if you are a boy. Your older sister can help explain to you how to interact with the opposite sex. Younger sisters are a joy as well. They often worship their older siblings and it can be a nice experience to be admired. Relationships with sisters, like any relationship depend on the people involved.

  1. 1. The Importance Of A Sister

    Why I love my sister...

    Why I Love My Sister Poem

    A sister is someone who loves you from the heart.
    No matter how much you argue, you cannot be drawn apart.
    She is a joy that cannot be taken away.
    Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.

    A friend who helps you through difficult times,
    Her comforting words are worth much more than dimes.
    A partner who fills your life with laughs and smiles,
    These memories last for miles and miles.

    When she is by your side, the world is filled with life.
    When she is not around, your days are full of strife.
    A sister is a blessing who fills your heart with love.
    She flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.

    A companion to whom you can express your feelings,
    She doesn't let you get bored at family dealings.
    Whether you are having your ups or downs,
    She always helps you with a smile and never frowns.

    With a sister, you cannot have a grudge.
    She is as sweet as chocolate and as smooth as fudge.
    Having a sister is not just a trend.
    It is knowing you can always turn to her, your best friend.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    This was written in thankfulness to a great sister who has given so much of herself to her sister.

    To me, you are an angel in disguise.
    Full of intuition, you are 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 you gave me your hand whenever you could.

    My gratitude for you has no end.

    I am just grateful to have such loving sisters. You are always there for me, no matter what I do or say. You have always been very forgiving and caring.

    Happy Birthday Wishes For Sister

    Sister, you are a guardian angel in disguise.
    You are perceptive, intelligent, and wise,
    Always helping me through good and bad.
    You are also the greatest friend I've ever had.
    If I could have one wish, it would be
    To give you all that you have given to me.
    Though I've put our relationship through some hazy days,
    You've been the sunlight that has shone in so many ways.
    Through my ups and downs, right by me you stood,
    And you gave me your hand whenever you could.
    Though I am sure my mistakes will not end here,
    You're always there to keep me away from my fears.
    I don't doubt some of your headaches are from me.
    With all the times you lecture and tease,
    I stand there upset and displeased.
    Though I tell you I can't stand you,
    You come back with, "That's not true."
    We've had our fights,
    Which lead to sleepless nights,
    But in the end, I thank you so much.
    My appreciation for you has no end.
    You will always be my sister and my friend.

    Happy Birthday, Sister!

  8. 6. One Sister Have I In Our House

    This poem is about Emily Dickinson's sister-in-law, Susan. Emily lived with her sister, Lavinia, ("One Sister have I in our house"), and she had a sister-in-law, Susan, her brother Austin's wife, who lived next door, ("one a hedge away"). "There's only one recorded" (Lavinia is her only biological sister). "But both belong to me" (she considers Susan to be a sister too, although they are actually sisters-in-law).

    One Sister have I in our house,
    And one, a hedge away.
    There's only one recorded,
    But both belong to me.

    One came the road that I came --
    And wore my last year's gown --
    The other, as a bird her nest,
    Builded our hearts among.

    She did not sing as we did --
    It was a different tune --
    Herself to her a music
    As Bumble bee of June.

    Today is far from Childhood --
    But up and down the hills
    I held her hand the tighter --
    Which shortened all the miles --

    And still her hum
    The years among,
    Deceives the Butterfly;
    Still in her Eye
    The Violets lie
    Mouldered this many May.

    I spilt the dew --
    But took the morn --
    I chose this single star
    From out the wide night's numbers --
    Sue - forevermore!

  9. 7. Three Sisters

    • By Francis I. Gillespie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A girl writes about the special bond between her and her sisters. They are not always together in the same place, but they are always together in spirit. Sometimes they fight, but nothing will ever break their special bond.

    Special Bond Between Sisters

    We are three sisters.
    Three sisters are we.
    I love each of you,
    And I know you love me.

    We're not always together.
    Life sometimes keeps us apart,
    But we're never separated.
    We're in each other's heart.

    Now I know we've had our troubles,
    But we always get through.
    The real message is you love me,
    And I also love you.

    We have had lots of good times
    That we'll never forget.
    Sometimes we worry
    And sometimes we fret.

    But if God ever gave me
    Something special, you see,
    It might have been the blessing of
    Three sisters are we.

    The Lord above has given me lots
    Of happiness and glee,
    But the most special thing he did was
    Make us sisters, all three.

  10. 8. Sisters And Best Friends

    • By Angelica Machado
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    The joy of sisterhood comes alive in this poem.

    Poem About The Joy Of Sisterhood

    God sent us to be sisters
    So we can be best of friends,
    To be there for one another
    Even when there is pain.
    I thank the Lord for sending my sisters to me,
    For whom I truly love and care.
    We shared so many things together,
    Like laughter and some scares.
    It's funny how we sometimes argue.
    I guess it's normal in this world,
    But having you as my sister
    Means more to me, more than you'll ever know.
    I wouldn't trade you for anything.
    I will never let go.
    As our friendship continues to grow,
    So will my love for you.
    Just always remember you can talk to me.
    I'll be the best friend you ever knew.

  12. 10. One Plus One Equals Two

    A relationship formed by blood and bonded with love will not soon be severed.

    One plus one equals two, you see,
    But somehow it's different with you and me.

    When we're together, we share one mind.
    A happier pair you'll never find.

    I'm only complete when you are near.
    To lose you someday is my biggest fear.

    You know my dreams and my every thought.
    No stronger bond could ever be sought.

    We have a lot in common, it's true,
    But who'd have thought, who ever knew?

    Twins we're not, so it's not ESP,
    But I'm not complete unless you're with me.

    More than friends, I can't explain it all.
    With you as my sister, I feel 10 feet tall.

    As sisters and friends, we're quite a pair.
    One soul, one mind is what we share.

    You make my world a better place.
    I live each day to see your face.

    It takes two halves to make a whole.
    My heart and yours, we make one soul.

  13. 11. My Sister

    Thankful for the gift of sisterhood.

    Long Lost Sister

    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 that 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.

    A tribute to the magical relationship between sisters. Not time nor space can lesson the bond. Forever in each other's hearts.

    Poem About Always Being Close With Sister

    Sister, we've been there through life's sorrow and pain,
    But together we have always endured the strain.
    We've argued and bickered and made each other mad,
    But if you weren't my sister, life would be so sad.
    We've cried till we laughed and laughed till we cried,
    Sometimes for no reason; we didn't even know why.
    When we're not together our bond is just as strong
    Because we are sisters; we know when something is wrong.
    We've whispered our deepest secrets only sisters could share.
    I love my sister dearly because she really cares.
    So whether we are together or we are far apart,
    You're my sister, my friend and forever in my heart.

    A sister writing about her relationship with her sister. Though it contains strife and arguments, there is and always will be a bond of love.

    Thank you for being there and for giving me a chance.
    Thank you for giving a care and not judging with a glance.

    Thank you for trusting me through the good times and the bad.
    Thank you for seeing me through the hard times that we've had.
    Thank you for being born, and I thank God that you're alive.
    Though our friendship may be worn, we will always get through that strife,
    Because we are sisters and each other's family.
    Like old pictures or an ancient memory,
    This will never end, this friendship that we've made,

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    This poem is about the closeness of sisters. The times they've shared will never be forgotten. They will have a place in each other's hearts, no matter how far apart their lives grow.

    Poem About A Special Place In A Sister's Heart

    It pains me to see you leave,
    But I never forget what I've learned through the years we've gone through.

    It hurts me to know,
    After a while you'll confide in someone else, not me.

    I'll always be there for you,
    Even after the end.
    I'll always stay true to our bond as one and won't ever let go.

    You are my sister,
    And my very best friend of all time,
    It's so true.
    We'll be that way even after the end has come for us.

    You are a part of me,
    And never will you ever leave my heart.
    All the times we've shared,
    Even when we didn't really care at all.

    Don't let anyone take my place,
    They'll never face or change our times together.

    The laughs,
    The tears,
    The fears,
    They have built up through the years.

    I'll never let us part,
    Because you'll always have a special place in my heart.

    This is a poem I wrote for my sister to show her how I feel about her even if I don't show it all the time.

    A Sister Is Many Things Poem

    A sister is someone special to me.
    A sister is someone to fight with.
    A sister is someone to cry with.
    A sister can sometimes understand you better than anyone else can.
    A sister is there for you through good times and bad.
    Some sisters are close.
    Some are far apart.
    Sometimes you might wish you could change your sister.
    But if I changed just one thing about my sister it might ruin something.
    Of course my sister wouldn't be the same.
    But most important it might ruin our sister relationship.
    We are as close as we could possibly be.
    Some people think a sister is just a sister.
    But my sister is more than that.
    She is and will always be my best friend.
    And my sister will always be very special to me.
    Because I couldn't picture what my life would be like without her.

    I had to do a school project about one attribute of my family. I chose my sister's eyes and how they make me feel.

    The Way I Feel About My Sister

    My sister's eyes are deep and calm, like an ocean.
    They never rest, and they are always in motion.
    They comfort me in times of need and fill me with love.
    My sister's eyes are beautiful and shine like the sun.
    They are blue, blue, blue with a hint of green,
    And when you look inside them, you can see the sea.
    Her eyes have an adventurous flame in them that she cannot hide.
    They are wild and crazy but filled with compassion inside.
    Her eyes are as wide as can be.
    They have a slight breeze in them, just like the trees.
    I love my sister and her eyes, which give me faith.
    Because of her and her loving eyes, I have strength.

    To My Sister

    To My Sister-

    When I was small I tried filling your shoes.
    Not much has changed, it's what I still try to do.
    As time has gone by, I still see what I saw then,
    Not only are you my sister, you are my friend.
    We laughed and cried together with arms open wide.
    When I lost who I was, you gave back my pride.
    You are a part of me as the moon is to the stars,
    And always remember I am me because of who you are.

    I love you,

    I Love My Sister Poem

    We had no choice.
    Knowing that we would become the best
    of friends for the rest of life, I would have never guessed.

    Granted, we fought a lot and sometimes
    hated each other at times,
    but we had no choice.

    We've laughed, we've cried, we've loved,
    we've hoped, we've dreamed,
    but through it all we stuck together,
    but we had no choice.

    I love you forever, till the day I die.
    You will forever be in my life.
    We really have no choice.
    We have no choice
    because you are my sister for life.
