Funny, friendly, bashful and sometimes bone-headed
Little sister of Dr. Daniel Merrill
Lover of the written word, my grandchildren and the natural world
I feel wonder at new life, love for my friends, and confusion with math
Afraid for the environment, abused women and children, and afraid of snakes
I would like to see Machu Picchu, my mothers's face once more and The Giants win the World Series

best friend, irony, little sister, sad, star, stars,
Oh shooting star!
Burnt out bright across a sky
thier wonder in your light
a frozen trail of tears you leave behind
Their laughter at your sparks
I have felt your ash
You roam lost within the dark
I run to where you've crashed
I've ran so fast so far to where you are
Oh fickle little shooting star
Oh shooting star!
Burnt out lost within a sky
They all cheer
They cannot see you wave goodbye
Oh shooting star!
I sigh despite their smiles
for the further you have flown
I know the faster you will die
fly away shooting star

dad, little sister, love,
She was easy
Easy going, easy to please and easy on the eyes
He pursued what was hard
Hard to attain, hard to read, and hardly ever pleased
Still, she loved him, fiercely
Possibly even more so, because he was hard

Dear Lord I come as humble as I may
Asking you to give my little sister strength
That she will need to make it thru the day.
I know the road ahead of her is going to be tuff
give her faith in knowing that in you God she can trust
I know it’s not easy for her and she’s going thru so much
I ask that you give her guidance Lord and let her feel your
I can’t begin to imagine the pain she must feel
But when I look into my sisters eyes the hurt
Is all to real
So Lord I come to you as humble as I may
Asking you to give my little sister strength to make
thru the day

They see strengths
Not the limitations
These are people who will make you proud of yourself
They will tell you why you’re special
Trust you to the point you have to answer their expectations
They make you better than you normally are
You can be proud of yourself
They respect you
For what you’ve done
Where you’ve come from
They see what you’ve experienced something real
Respect you for your courage
They live by their rules
They do not expect you to follow theirs
They are at peace to themselves
They are not proving anything to you
They are good listeners
Sincere in their interest in you
You feel important
They are available for honest
Makes you want to share yourself

for her, goodbye, i miss you, little sister, love, pain, sister,
At the age of two
In my eyes u grew,
From a baby to a teenager
And now to a stranger,
Its only memories that are left
To such an extreme depth,
How do we depart
And make a new start,
Broken we are
That you are too far,
We never expected this day
And that’s all i am going to say…..
by Louise Riveiro - Mitchell |
life, love, native american, little sister,
My little sister so wild and free
Always walking ahead of me
Never afraid to take any test
Papa’s pride, his little princess
You loved a brave as wild as you
And to this day you still do
But there was another who loved you so
And he stepped aside and let you go
You never looked back to see
Another loved him it was me
And now after all this time
The wolf has his doe
And the hawk is mine

baby, birth, chocolate, clothes, confidence, crazy, creation, cute love, encouraging, family, god, little sister, love, sister,
Sisters are meant forever, so they say
only, I have a little sister god sent my way
she is my friend through all life's troubles
my guide through the rough and shallow wails
I didn't choose to love her this much
but I did so, with God's almighty touch
I have an older sister, God had previously sent
but we never became the friends that we were meant
so birth alone, does not bond siblings
but the truth here is ever so clear
I grew to love my baby sister dear
brothers too fill up my heart
but, it's only young Tammy I can not be apart
no one else has such control over my heart
by Erin W. |
My dearest little sister, who I adore..
God blessed me with you, forevermore.
Side by side, we will always be..
Through tears and heartache, I will never leave..
Through life's trials we will work them out together..
What I am trying to say is I will love you forever...

brother, family, inspirational, life, love, sister,
For the very first time
He discovers a new face
As he stares into her eyes
She drifts off into space.
“This is my little sister?”
He questions the man above.
“Why she is very beautiful.”
“Pure as a heavens dove!”
For the very first time
He held her in his hands
He too, then drifted off
Now he understands.

emotions, little sister, memory, youth,
I remember when...
We'd run around the yard.
And play 'til the sun set.
We had so much fun.
Never had any regret.
I remember when...
We had all those fights.
With every word that was said.
I wish I could take it all away.
No longer feel this dread.
I remember when...
We use to be so close.
When we had it all.
Let's forget the past.
Our love was never small.

When little sister feels alone
She grabs her teddy bear
Gives it a big hug

The way she smiled with her eyes
She smiles for the Lord
My sister Kathy passed last night.
Rest in peace little sister.You
were too good for this world.

familylife, me, feelings, life, love, me, poems, little sister,
I love my little sister with all my heart
But she is always in my personal life that has nothing to do with her
She tells me to stop going into her personal life that I am not in
Well I have a life
I have feels inside me to although some times I may not show it
I have other feelings other then love
I have other feelings then boys
More importantly I have feels about who I am in life
Who I want to be
Who I am now and who I wanna be
How can I tell her that I dont wanna always have her writing on all my poems
How can I tell her that not all the poems are about me
How can I tell her everything that I just wrote in this ?
by Carmen Penchi aka Sunshine |
little sister, love, sister,
I remember the day you were born
I exclaimed Oh God not another one
As you grew older it was plain to see
The lovely woman you’d turn out to be
Maggie my dear, we shared a room through the years
I combed your hair, wiped away your tears
Tried to keep you happy, and calm your fears
My dreams for you were always many
Hoping you’d marry a man with plenty a penny
And here you are all settled and grown,
With a family you can call your own
A beautiful woman so deep so sincere
With so much love for her family it is quite clear
So my dear sweet sister, I proclaim with no fear
That I will love you forever year after year.

anti bullying, autumn, baby, beach, betrayal, birthday, body,
Jhaine in Brazil, I think
closest I can figger
'cause, we don't share some language
probably a generational thing
many words I don't understand
many of the words
but, the ideas, I think
I could help to explain
Jhaine, she comes across strong
seems to carry herself
loves her baby
beautiful and strong
rise up, little sister, rise on up
above it all
and bring the ones you love
for you are beautiful
you are strong

leadership, leaving, little sister, london, longing, loss, love,
Wait waiting for you to wait.
Come on,let me tell you once.
Love you, love you, we love you.
But you can not meet us once.
You have been irresponsible, irresponsible.
But do not come.
Why do not you.
You love us now.
Tell me today why do you have
Become a friend from me.
Or you are not with us.
by Rebecca Workman |
happiness, love, peace, sister,
A girl as lovely as a rose
With the face of a angel
The spirit of a dove
And a heart full of love.
As beautiful as a sunset
With hair that waves
Her beauty comes along
With her childish ways.
A kid that has it all
All of an angel
She's my little sister
A precious one at that.

first love, little sister, lust,
I remember the feelings
I had for you dear
Images in my mind
so vivid so clear
I know it was true
you felt it for me

best friend, brother, cute, little sister, sister, sweet love,
Fusses and fights
Long, sleepless nights
Snuggled up together
I dim the lights
Who’s better spelling
Trying to buy
The story their selling
He’s right, she’s wrong
The shot was long
Not picking sides
Can we please move on
Blood curdling screams
Life or death, it seems
I arrive to giggles
on the swing
They don’t put on a show
When they think I don’t know
I spy from inside
Through the window
I see, first hand
And sweet little girl
The best of friends
by MARION MWANGI |
baby, blessing, brother, children, courage, family, little sister,
My tiny eyes shed tears,
Sometimes of pain and many fears,
You threw a mean punch and I learned to duck,
But in all those fights I learned to kick,
Like a stubborn angry baby mule,
And with speed I ran a mile.
My tiny lips smiled,
And I knew I was loved,
The bullies held back,
Lest you break their backs,
Fist of my brother you had my back,
Even when I feared the dark.
Sometimes I wanted to hit you so hard,
But my fist to you was a soft sponge,
You felt no pain so you took my beatings,
With your courage I saw me thriving,
Fist of my brother I love you still,
Even though my own fist has become steel.

familysister, me, love, me, relationship, sister, i love you,
this was a poem I wrote about my older sister and my relationship
My sister doesn't love me she
won't say it but i know
She's nice to me at times though shell never give me hugs or provide me with gifts to warm
Her friends our better than mines so when there around she pretends I don't exist we never
get into fights excpet once or twice i regretted it afterwards I don't know if she did we used
to be real cool now im not sure what happened to our relationship seventeen years i waited
for it to get better to no avail and for the rest of my life I will wait for her to say those magic
words I love you little sister

familyme, me, little sister,
no pictures of me have i seen
for so long
no mother hanging on my wall
i miss so much
would love to see the smiles of my little brother
and little sister everyday
'my pictures are down
no familiar ground
i know my mother
when i see her
you look so familiar are we kin
regrets and cinfessions of sin
i never tried to be a joke
anger at laughter again
worst case scenario
the lie i'm living
makes me bleed
i've been making a game out of you
for thiteen years
prove it to me when you catch me
in the rye
