Uncle Poems

Uncle and Nieces and Nephews

Uncles can often be seen as a replacement father figure by nieces and nephews. It is a chance to experience a relationship with someone who may bear similarities to your father, having grown up in the same family, but at the same time is not your father. An Uncle is not responsible for you, and is therefore able to share a less restrictive relationship. You may use your relationship with you uncle as a way to explore who you are and what might be possible in your relationship with your father. He may fulfill emotional needs that may not have been met from your father.

    To me you're more than an Uncle,
    you're truly a great friend.
    Someone I could pour my thoughts out to
    knowing you'll cherish them to the end....

    My dear Uncle Buddy can't you see?
    I'm not the little niece you remember me to be.
    I am now sixteen and at the high
    Soon it will be time for you to say good-bye....
