About the Poem

This poem is about my love for my little sister, who died from brain cancer at the age of 10. It is about the love she shared and the love I still have for her.

Sisterly Love

Your ear to ear smile brought joy to us all
As my sister you knew just what to say
When I felt worthless you helped me stand tall
Now you have gone, how I hated that day
I feel my life has been torn apart
You taught me how to be strong, loving and wise
I know you live on, inside of my heart
Though everyday a part of me dies
But when I think of you it helps me go on
So I thank you for all the love you have
I still can't believe that you are now gone
When you left you were so little and brave
Not only were you my sister and friend
But you always had a hand to lend

Ashtyn Bevins Hello their I LOVED your poem! It remindes me sooo much of two people I know. (they are my negbhors) She lost her sister at the age of 17 because of suicide. They were very close and when her sister died she couldn't sleep up stairs anymore so they gave her the computer room to make it into her room. She use to sleep with her sister at night and she would have to go threw her sisters room to get to hers. Her death date is coming up on October 27th She killed herself on her little cousins birthday he's now in 5th grade. She will be 19 yrs old. I just wanted to say your poem touched my heart and others to this day i hope you don't mind but i'm gona print it off. Loved it! Nice job and I'm sry if youved lost a loved one! best wishes ~Always~n~Forever~ Chels

Donna
i really loved this poem. im always complaing about my little sister but you helped me realize how lucky i am to have such a nice and beatuful sister.
Tori
Thank you so much for writing this poem. My little 12 year-old sister recently passed away after a seventeen-month fight with bone cancer. I've been having a difficult time coping with her loss and the poem you wrote helped me feel as though other people can relate to my emotions.
Emma
This poem really touched me. My sister, 19, and I, 15, have not always been close. Infact we fought a lot when she lived at home, then she started to drive at age 17 and moved out of home at 18. This helped her mature a lot because she wasn't really much of a sister to me but ever since she moved out of home we've become closer than ever and it feels great. I'm very protective of my sister and quite recently my sister was diagnosed with and STD passed on to her from a guy, which i'm not happy about. This made me realise more how much i actually love her and we're really getting along heaps. We talk about everything and anything and i couldn't imagine life without her so hang in there Ashtyn
Torrence
This is a really cute yet tragic poem. I love my sister so deeply and if i ever lose her. My tears will be an endless stream.

Awww. this makes me feel like I want to cry because I have a sister whom I don't really get along with . but I showed this to her . it makes you think about the "what-if's" . peace out gurl

I loved your poem!It really made me think of my little sister. She is a baby but I still wouldn't want to lose her. I love my sister very much and I couldn't think of one moment of not having my sister. I bet it was hard for you and I bet it took you a long time to get over losing her.

Really touching poem. I really can relate to this poem because i lost my twin when i was little because my mother could only support one baby in her stomach and when we were born they told my mother my twin (who was a boy) was dead and even though me and my brother never grew up together he still grows inside of me.

Your poem is great. It startled me, you see, because I lost my little sister to brain cancer too. She was 8, I was 13. Your poem says the words that I can't say all the time.
candy
i really enjoyed reading the poem. It gave me a lot to think about when I think about my sister. My sister means alot to me and I live her with all my heart. Her 17th birthday is approaching and I wanted to do something special. I decided to make her a home made card and inside there would be a bunch of poems and qoutes. I know she likes poetry so it would be a good gift. i dedcided to use this poem giving full credit to the author(of course).

I know how you must feel..when i was 2 years old, my mom was pregant with my brother and sister. but they died inside her. so i live feeling a guilt because i think that me and my brother(we're twins, too) were too much for her to handle. but i'm sure you sister is with mine. i'm sure they're ok. they're watching over us each day.
