Brothers and Sisters, We are


Born brothers and sisters we were
Growing up in the same place
But in so many different ways
Some of us successful, some still struggling
Childhood dreams, playing with our minds
Many fights, lots of talks
May not get along
Still there for each other
We were never the ones to show love
The love is deep inside each other
Brothers and sisters we are
In all our differences we are there
Thru sickness, love loss, even death
We are there, hiding our pride we are
For we are bond by blood and by heart
To each our own, we do care in our hearts
Between the years of ups and downs
We all come together for the family
One by one we lend a hand or our heart
Words can never say how we feel
But deep inside us the heart really knows
Family and love comes from the heart and the soul
Nothing can break the bond of family
Life is to short my brothers and sisters
Bend your pride and come around
We may not be perfect
But we are family deep down inside
As we grow old and weary
Our lives and love will slip away
Forgive the ones who cause pain
Forgive the storytellers and the lairs
Does it matter to who they are?
For they are brothers and sisters
For life and for love and blood
We are deep in bond by our mother's love
I love my brothers and sisters

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This came to mind as I rode with 3 sisters and a brother to a funeral. We must forgive ourselves and stay united as family. The bond is to strong to let anyone go
