Siblings are like branches of a tree. They may grow in different directions, but their roots are the same.

Side by side or miles apart,

We are sisters, connected by the heart.

Siblings Love Forever

Born to the same mother,

They grow up together,

Laugh and Cry together,

Go to the same school,

Share dresses, Share food,

Save each other, from scolds,

Partners in little crimes,

They share their dreams n desires,

At home, and the school.

They fight, they tease, they shout,

But, they are always for each other,

Like no one else does.


Siblings are like flowers, born to a single plant.

Life is not the same always

Grown from the same strong root,

Nurtured, protected and cared,

Life moves on, and the truth is not pleasant,

Life takes them to opposite directions,

Siblings do not always remain together,

They have to follow different paths,

Just like the branches of a tree,

They spread out in different directions,

To grow, develop and rise,

But in their connected hearts,

The attachment and affection remains,

Love grows each day, to remain forever.

Chitrangada Sharan

As we grew up, my brothers acted,

as if they didn’t care.

But I always knew,

they looked out for me, and were there.

        We had a lot of fun growing up together. Both of my brothers are now gone and I miss them along with my parents. Your poetry is lovely.

        So sorry to learn that you lost your siblings. Siblings have a special place in our lives, that cannot be replaced. It’s a precious connection and we are fortunate, if we have siblings. Some people may not be so fortunate.

        Appreciate your comments and support!

        Beautiful poem. I have also voted.

        I miss 3 of my siblings whom I lost in the recent years. We used to talk over the phone twice a week, at least, and I miss their loving and caring voices.

        Thanks Dianna! So nice to hear from you after long.

        You are right—we miss our siblings. We get so busy with our lives that it becomes difficult to spend more time together. But the attachment is always there.

        Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

        I wish I lived closer to my siblings. I miss being able talk with them over a cup of coffee while sitting cozy on the back porch. Sad that sometimes we must go our different ways. But as you write, the affection remains.

        Thanks Devika for sharing your memories and thoughts!

        Life is like that. In childhood, we live together with our brothers and sisters, but as we grow in life, the paths become different. Sometimes distance is the barrier, at other times we are too busy in our own affairs. Whatever may be the case, it’s good to remain connected with our dear ones.

        Thanks for appreciating the poem!

        I have a much younger brother and sister and cared for them. It was great to have shared such moments. Though I live in Croatia and they are still South Africa we are close in our hearts. I like your poem!

        Thank you once again!

        We get busy with our lives but on some special occasions, I really miss my siblings. Though I am constantly in touch, it’s not always possible to meet them.

        Thank You Shyron for your kind words of appreciation!

        I can relate to your comments. Brothers are like that, they love their sisters, would tease at times, but they are very protective too.

        You are right that we get busy with our own families and therefore, meet less with our siblings. Sometimes the distance becomes a barrier.

        What’s important is that the affection and attachment is always there. Sometimes just by sharing our problems, by talking on phone, provides the much needed emotional boost.

        Many thanks for sharing your valuable thoughts .

        I completely agree with your views. If the foundation of relationships is strong, it will remain forever. As siblings grow, their paths may be different. They may get busy with their career, their own family. But they remain connected with their brothers and sisters and whenever possible, meet and spend quality time with each other.

        Many thanks for adding your valuable opinion.

        Chitrangada, beautiful poem. I miss most the fun I had with my two brothers, we were close and they were my protectors and my friends and we shared all that you have mentioned in your beautiful poem, now we are still close, but we have our own families and one brother lives a thousand miles away.

        Blessings my friend.

        The affection shared by siblings sometimes depend on their upbringing. Once serious bonds are formed in childhood despite different experiences the siblings would always love each other.
