Siblings--A Relationship Forever (Poem)

Chitrangada loves to express her moods and emotions, through her poems. Most of her poems are free style and spontaneous with Nature at core

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

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 are the best friends

Siblings are the best friends

Siblings—A Relationship of 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 innocent, little crimes,

They share their dreams and desires,

At home, at play, and at the school.


They fight, they tease, they shout,

But, they‘re always for each other,

With each other, like no one else does.


Siblings grow up and go on different paths, but they are always there for each other.

Siblings grow up and go on different paths, but they are always there for each other.

Life is not always the same

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

Siblings are like flowers, born to a single plant.

Siblings are like flowers, born to a single plant.

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.

So glad to know that you can relate to this. We become so busy with our lives after our marriage, that every time we meet our siblings, those moments become, cherished moments of celebrations.

Wish you happy siblings day! Thank you so much!

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.

Beautiful and inspiring! And, the accompanying flower photos are ravishing. Lovely, as always!

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!

Dianna Mendez on December 18, 2017:

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.

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.

Thank You for reading and commenting on this hub! Much appreciated!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on December 05, 2017:

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

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on December 05, 2017:

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!

DDE on December 05, 2017:

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!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on December 04, 2017:

Thank you Hari Ji for appreciating the 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!

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on December 04, 2017:

Thanks for commenting!

Thanks Madan Ji for appreciating the poem. Glad you liked it.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on December 04, 2017:

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 .

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on December 04, 2017:

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 Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on December 04, 2017:

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on December 03, 2017:

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.

femi from Nigeria on December 03, 2017:

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.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on December 03, 2017:

Both of my brothers are now deceased. I do miss the times we shared together. Lovely poetry!
