Sisterhood Celebrated

Both born under the same star,
In mind twin-like, though years apart,
A closeness, which age couldn’t bar,
In truth sisters, but friends from the start.

Through years of bitter words and fights,
Quarrelling for petty ownership rights,
Through games of houses and schools and dolls,
Our laughter rang in our home’s halls.

When you were good,I was not,
In between our poor parents caught,
Between us,as far as they could see,
Only one good person there could be.

Memories of tales carried and told,
Memories of petty blackmail unfold.
Now friends, now foes, now uneasy truce,
Deals made, then broken, and hell let loose!

Yet, late at night, dreams did share
Hopes,secrets and fears laid bare,
Tears of joy and sorrow wept
On shoulders there,when most bereft.

Amidst strangers, with you beside
Courage to smile and keep head high
To have secret codes and jokes together,
A companion rivalled by no other.

You, who were that troublesome brat,
Then sibling,rival and confidante,
With you,life seen at its best and worst,
Sister, yes, but best friend first.

  1. i usually dont do this ..but these line.makes me do a bit of awwing
    Awwwwwww !! the best about this u strt thinking about ur sibling and can connect with nd every lines..there was a hours of nostalgia i went through after reading this …the only difference i had a sibling of opposite gender …so its like i had played the dolls and cricket game both ….worst about being having a opposite gender sibling is u cant xchange clothes with her neither those fancy accessories she has .. 🙁 😛

    • Yeah, most of the poem IS about the bond you share with your sibling – whether younger or older, whether of the same gender or not. I’m sure we’re all glad to have that person to fight and laugh with – someone who WILL put up with all your faults because – well, because blood is thicker than water,as they say. ^_^ (and most often, you share a room, so you *can’t* get angry and go anywhere else. ;P )

  2. A masterpiece from you yet once more. It’s a complete pleasure reading your work, and it never fails to mesmerize me time and again. Cheers. 🙂

    • Thanks Priyanka! 😀 [She’s going to make beautiful paintings for me, so I’m just as lucky! 😉 😀 ]
