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.

      Yes, having siblings, to share everything with them, is a blessing indeed. We may be busy in our lives, but the treasured moments spent with our siblings, always brings a smile on our faces.

      These are some of the experiences I missed, not having a sibling. These are relationships to be treasured. Thanks for sharing.

      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!

      Yes, it’s nostalgic to remember the happy childhood. I have one brother and one sister. I am well connected with my brother, but it’s my sister, whom I miss very much.

      Good to know about your siblings. God Bless the sweet relationship.

      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 .

      Thank you femi for your kind visit and comments!

      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.

      Nice poem. I miss them sometimes, but not always.

      Your poem is good but I would make it more emotive. Let it say something about the interactions with siblings. I was thinking of this all the way down the pages, until I saw the two quotes. They are both very succinct, but say a lot. Write your poem like that.

      Your pictures only made sense because you explained them. Nice analogies, but what do you think of having a picture of siblings as well? Use only one picture analogy and another like the video attached. Just suggestions but the poem is 'cool'. Hari OM!
