there is no friend like a sister
and no sister is like mine
the love and care in her eyes
is always there to shine

at times she can be annoying
but, like she says, that's her job
she has a great sense of humor
except for when i sob

we hate it when the other is somber
unless we are the cause
sometimes when i am crying
she joins in and makes the laws

when i'm crying because of a friend
she always repeats this line
there is no friend like a sister
and no sister is like mine


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after being hurt by my friends. I realized that no matter what you can never have full confidence that your friend will stick by you but a sister is different. I can tell my sister anything and i know she will always stick by me. I found the saying " There is no friend like a sister and no sister like my sister" when i was in israel and it was written on the necklace my parents bought for me and both of my sisters, in Hebrew. I felt such a connection to those words that i felt i needed to share it with others. So those of you that have sisters that you can confide in, know that you are really lucky and I hope you all enjoy this poem.
