1. You Are The Best Brother

       by Catherine Pulsifer

My brother is a true friend of mine
He is always loyal and true
He always is so kind
No matter what the situation he always comes through

My brother is a confidant
I share with him all my wants.
I can tell him anything
He keeps it to himself and never sings.

So from me your sister I do say
You are the best in every way.
Thank you, brother, for being you
I appreciate all you do.

2. A Sisters Rant

       by Catherine Pulsifer

I used to rat you out so much
At times you felt like a crutch.
Oh, you were such a pest
I used to think I got the worst not the best.

You broke my stuff and hid it too
I could have hit you with my shoe.
You laughed and made fun of me
Made me wish you lived in a tree.

Am not sure when it happened but
you stopped breaking and hiding my stuff.
You seemed to grow up overnight
And no longer did we spat and fight.

I laugh when I think back to the day
When the most important thing was play.
How life has changed over the years
You, my brother, I do hold dear!

3. Her Awful Brother

       by Edgar A. Guest

Who teaches little Janet slang,
And trains those lips to say: “Gol Dang!”?
Her awful brother!
Who whispers wise cracks in her ear
When none to stop his pranks is near?
Her awful brother!

Who thinks up things for her to say
To shock her grandma day by day?
Her awful brother!
Who laughs to hear her cry: “Oh, heck!”
Or “by your age!” And “wash your neck!”
Her awful brother!

When friends have happened in for tea,
Who knows she’ll mutter loud: “Oh gee!”
Her awful brother!
Who likes to have his sister rough,
And fills her head with dreadful stuff?
Her awful brother!

And yet, despite his love of mirth,
Who thinks that child the best on earth?
That awful brother!
And who is it of whom she’ll boast
And tell you that she loves the most?
That awful brother!

4. Words Can’t Express

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Words can’t express my thoughts
Letters can’t connect the dots
To express how special you are
You, my brother, are a star.

You are always there for me
You are as special as a brother can be
We have our share of disagreements
But also we have had many achievements.

You are like a best friend
With you, I don’t pretend.
About anything, I can talk with you
And you also give good advice that’s true.

When I’m feeling down
You act like such a clown
You always could make me smile
Even when we were juveniles.

A helping hand you always give
You put things in perspective.
I just want to say, I look up to you
And count my blessings every day!

5. My Brother, My Friend

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Growing up we didn’t see
How challenging life could be
As brother and sister, we have a bond
And you, my brother, I am more than fond.

Life has given us many laughs
Together we have seen giraffes
We shared many smiles
As we have traveled life’s miles.

We have seen potholes and roadblocks
And faced a few of life’s knocks
But I could always count on your support
You always were a positive sort!

No matter what life does send
You, my brother, have proven to be a friend.
An encourager and inspiring man
I’m so glad we belong to the same clan!

6. An Awesome Brother

       by Catherine Pulsifer

When you were a boy
And use to steal my toys
I couldn’t imagine you as a friend
It was all I could do to contend
With you as a brother
I would complain to Mother.

But the years past by
And you stopped making me cry
With age, a man you became
Things changed and you were not the same.
It’s hard to believe the friend you become
You my brother, you are awesome!

7. My Big Brother

       by Catherine Pulsifer

I watch everything you do
You’re my hero that is true
I love your laughter and your smile
You always make me feel worthwhile.

Sure, you teased me but I always knew
I could always count on you.
You always watched out for me
Together we could be so silly.

If everyone had a brother like you
The world would be a better place too
Thank you for being there for me
I love you big brother, you are extraordinary!

8. A Brother Is

       by Catherine Pulsifer

A brother is cars and trucks
Some would say he is a roughneck.

A brother is snakes and bugs
But one who always gives a hug.

A brother is a big tease
But also likes to please.

A brother is a best friend
And will stand by you until the end

You, my brother, are one of a kind
You are the best, that I remind!

Love you always, no matter what
I send you this message from my heart.

9. Lifelong Sister and Brother

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Sisters and brothers are together for life
Growing up, there is at times, strife.
But, no matter what there is always a bond
One of friendship and beyond.

At times, they can drift apart
But the bond between them never departs.
As the years go by they may find
That their sibling is one of a kind.

God gives us sisters and brothers
A relationship like no other.
Give thanks for that sibling sent
It truly is no accident!

10. Have Patience

       by Catherine Pulsifer

You will find life is just not the same
If you don’t have a sister or brother to blame.
Growing up a brother can be
To his sister a bully.

He takes her stuff
And he can be so rough
You would think
He didn’t give a blink.

But a brother may act so tough
As a sister, you may say that is enough.
But deep down a brother does care
His love is one that is rare.

His feelings he will show
When life gives us a blow.
So remember to have patience
When you need him, he will be there in an instance.

11. I Wanted a Sister

       by Catherine Pulsifer

I wanted a sister but
With you I got stuck.
A baby boy
That steals my toys.

A brother, no way, it couldn’t be
I wanted a sister can’t you see.
I asked why a brother?
Oh Mother, oh Mother!

Boys like weird things like bugs
They bring home frogs and slugs
Oh why a brother I had to have
I was not very glad!

But when I saw your little baby face
You my brother I did embrace.
You were so tiny and cute
I stopped with my dispute.

And as you grew I loved you so
I no longer want a sister I want you to know
As brother happiness you bring
I wouldn’t trade you for anything.

12. To My Big Brother

       by Anonymous

When I was younger, you were my hero,
My protector, my guide.
Now that I’m older, I realize
That you’re still my hero, my rock, my pride.

13. Brotherly Love

       by Anonymous

Brothers are like streetlights along the road
They don’t make the journey easier or shorter
But they light up the path and make the walk worthwhile
And when the road looks dark and frightening
They shine their lights and show the way
And somehow, the destination doesn’t seem quite so far away

14. Little Brother

       by Mary Ann Hoberman

Little brother, little brother, so small and slow
Following me everywhere I go
Copying me, imitating me
Wanting to be just like me

15. Big Brother

       by Eileen Spinelli

Big brother, big brother, strong and tall
Always watching over me, never letting me fall
Guiding me, directing me
Showing me right from wrong

16. Brotherly Advice

       by Edgar Guest

A brother is a gift from God above
A friend who’ll stand by you through life’s roughest love
So cherish him, respect him, listen to his advice
For he’ll always be there to help you navigate life’s twists and turns

17. Sibling Love

Through thick and thin, good and bad
We stick together, side by side
Never leaving each other behind

Our connection remains forever intact

Sharing secrets, dreams, and everyday moments
Though life may take us different ways
Our bond will remain forever strong and true

My brother, my protector, my shield
Standing guard, always ready to yield
Keeping me safe from harm’s reach
A hero in my eyes, a blessing to teach

21. Brother

       by Theodore Roethke

You had us make it from a sheet of tin.
It gave you a sense of meaning.
It was your story—
Gnomes in the glen—
And in your craft you’d praise
A world of men.

22. To My Brother George

       by Felicia Hemans

Say not, the struggle nought availeth,
The labour and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been, things remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
It may be, in yon smoke concealed,
Your comrades chase e’en now the fliers,
And, but for you, possess the field.

A helping hand, a listening ear,
And a shoulder to cry on, my dear.

25. My Little Brother

       by Nikki Giovanni

My little
brother
reminds me
of me

i see him
face down
hair wild
kicking and pushing
the soft ground
in front of him
his face turns red
and as the tears well
he pushes and kicks
harder

i say
that’s right
you got to stand up
to the ground
but he
just pushes
and kicks
so hard
it’s impossible
for him
to get
up

i say
let it go
let it go
but he doesn’t hear
he just kicks
and pushes
and cries
and the ground
stays
where it is

Still to be neat, still to be drest,
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfum’d:
Lady, it is to be presum’d,
Though when I view the glass, ’tis true,
Thine eyes are shaven, not the new.
‘Tis so, but why the question lay,
When I both see, and know the way?
Still be thy lips perfum’d, both on their inside,
Lay, though the same you have apply’d,
T’have done it; still I thus must do
To make you a sweetmeat, new.

I wish that I could give to you
More interest and wit
More charm and more cheer
More kindness and hope
More courage and cheer
More strength and endurance
More patience and truth
More grace and love
Than the vastness of youth

12. To My Brothers

       by Edgar Allan Poe

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”

Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you
In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.

13. To My Brothers

Let the bell toll!- a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river;
And, Guy de Vere, hast thou no tear?– weep now or never more!
See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore!
Come! let the burial rite be read- the funeral song be sung!-
An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young-
A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.

Of a harvest moon.

To that love in me.

A presence, like a single motion made
Of air and sun— a stillness, as of light
And then a music as of sound in flight—
A portrait like a will of colors laid
Against a ground that makes them not afraid,
A presence made of multiple delight,
A beauty like the rapture of a height
That breaks in being and will not be stayed.

10. Ruth

       by Katherine Philips

Not sullen, not disdainful, not as one
Who wishing no mankind can have no man;
But kind and tender, feeling as a friend
And in their love and service can be true;
And this great creature, which she in her womb
Cares for as if she lov’d and nurses it,
When it comes forth is to their eyes so small
That they look round and see it not and cry,
It is not here: and then their mother smiles,
And says that it is little, dear, to her.
And now they stoop to look at it, but she
Will rather keep it long than give it them,
And holds it as her own; so let it lie
In the sweet atmosphere of this small room
So long as she can keep it.

6. Brother and Sister

       by Anonymous

I cannot choose but think upon the time
When our two lives grew like two buds that kiss
At lightest thrill from the bee’s swinging chime,
Because the one so near the other is.

He was the elder and a little man
Of forty inches, bound to show no dread,
And I the girl that puppy-like now ran,
Now lagged behind my brother’s larger tread.

I held him wise, and when he talked to me
Of snakes and birds, and which God loved the best,
I thought his knowledge marked the boundary
Where men grew blind, though angels knew the rest.

7. Growing Up

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Growing up, I was always to blame
You just sat and smiled all the same.

No matter what I did
You always blamed “the kid.”

And in the middle of the night.
You would sneak around and give me a fright.
And there were times when I would hide.
And you would look for me high and wide.

And you always loved the snow.
You made snowmen just for show.
You always did well on the tests.
You were smarter than the rest.

And as a teenager, you thought you were cool.
The girls would look at you and drool.
I would roll my eyes and sigh.
If they only knew, they would cry.

Oh, the memories of so long ago
Yes, when we were kids, we didn’t know.
What great friends we would be
As we got older and more crazy!

So you, my dear brother, I have a bond.
Of you, I have grown so fond.
You’re the best brother a girl could have
Even if you almost drove me mad!

8. A Brother Dear

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Happy Birthday to a brother who is dear
As you read this, I can see your grin ear to ear.
Yes, it is me, your sister saying your dear.
Did you ever think those words you would hear?

But, you, my brother, you’re the best.
Your age shows you’re reaching the crest.
It’s over the hill for you now.
So let your sister please allow

A song I want to sing for you
Siblings, we will always be, that’s true.
And with the age, you are now at
It’s okay, you’re a little fat.

All joking aside, I wish you a Happy Day.
May you enjoy it in every way
We want you to know we are always there.
And for you, we do care!

10. Wonderful Brother

       by Anonymous

You’re my wonderful brother,
that I truly admire.
You encourage me,
and easily inspire.

You’re one of those people,
I could always rely.
You’d comfort me, my confidant,
when I felt sorrow and cry.

On those days,
I just needed to talk.
You’d stick around,
listen, not walk.

Whenever I was in trouble,
or simply just stuck.
I could depend on you,
had no need for luck.

I’m always excited,
for the moments we share.
A brother like you,
is definitely rare.

For being my brother,
and for being there.
I’m infinitely grateful,
I love you and care.

11. My Big Brother

       by Anonymous

You taught me much, but this I don’t know,
How to let you go, as you had to go.
You left me, no choice, it seems,
Missing your voice, my dreams.

“I Love You” unsaid, it stings,
Before you took flight on angel’s wings.
One wish, “Goodbye,” my heart’s quest,
In my love for you, I’m forever blessed.

12. Blame

       by Anonymous

After my mother died,
I cared for my younger brother
for weeks,
did laundry, rode my bicycle
to the supermarket,
used gift certificates
the neighborhood had given us
at the funeral
to buy detergent
and dinner.

It was April, and I
dressed my brother,
made sure he bathed
and we walked to the school bus together
like we did every morning
before the accident.
At night, I slept in my mother’s bed.
Although I heard the bird crying
I never went into the office
to feed him.
When he died, I wrapped him
in a plastic bag
and placed him
at the bottom of the burn barrel
where my mother would burn the leaves
we raked from the yard

every fall. I remember those nights
in October, the embers would float up
and my brother and I,
on the old swing set,
would try to catch
the ashes
in our hands.

13. My Loving Brother

       by Anonymous

You’re my wonderful brother,
and I love you so dearly.
I speak from the heart,
with truth and sincerely.

You’ve always been there,
as a listener and pal.
You’re one of the rare ones,
I could always depend..

With your words and time,
you’re honest and kind.
You’ve helped guide my way,
those times I’ve been blind.

My loving brother,
I do love you, and I do care,
I’m looking forward,
to all those moments we’ll share.

14. If Any

       by Anonymous

If any little love of mine
May make life the sweeter,

If any little care of mine
May make a friend’s the fleeter,

If any lift of mine may ease
A toiler bending,

God give me love and care, and strength,
We live by him for lending.

15. Where Did the Years Go

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Where did the years go
It seems like so long ago!
We were kids and teased each other so
We would play and have fun in the snow.

We would play tricks and giggle
And we would dance like a wiggle
Where did the years go
It seems like so long ago!

Now here you another birthday
And you have gone a bit gray
But hey my brother that is okay
As we still love you every day!

16. Brother and Sister

       by Lewis Carroll

“SISTER, sister, go to bed!
Go and rest your weary head.”
Thus the prudent brother said.

“Do you want a battered hide,
Or scratches to your face applied?”
Thus his sister calm replied.

“Sister, do not raise my wrath.
I’d make you into mutton broth
As easily as kill a moth”

The sister raised her beaming eye
And looked on him indignantly
And sternly answered, “Only try!”

Off to the cook he quickly ran.
“Dear Cook, please lend a frying-pan
To me as quickly as you can.”

And wherefore should I lend it you?”
“The reason, Cook, is plain to view.
I wish to make an Irish stew.”

“What meat is in that stew to go?”
“My sister’ll be the contents!”
“Oh”
“You’ll lend the pan to me, Cook?”
“No!”
Moral: Never stew your sister.

17. My Brothers

       by Robert William Service

While I make rhymes my brother John
Makes shiny shoes which dames try on,
And finding to their fit and stance
They buy and wear with elegance;
But mine is quite another tale,–
For song there is no sale.

My brother Tom a tailor shop
Is owner of, and ladies stop
To try the models he has planned,
And richly pay, I understand:
Yet not even a dingy dime
Can I make with my rhyme.

My brother Jim sells stuff to eat
Like trotters, tripe and sausage meat.
I dare not by his window stop,
Lest he should offer me a chop;
For though a starving bard I be,
To hell, say I, with charity!

My brothers all are proud of purse,
But though my poverty I curse,
I would not for a diadem
Exchange my lowly lot with them:
A garret and a crust for me,
And reams and dreams of Poetry.

18. Brothers

       by Gerard Manley Hopkins

How lovely the elder brother’s
Life all laced in the other’s,
Lóve-laced!—what once I well
Witnessed; so fortune fell.
When Shrovetide, two years gone,
Our boys’ plays brought on
Part was picked for John,
Young Jóhn: then fear, then joy
Ran revel in the elder boy.
Their night was come now; all
Our company thronged the hall;
Henry, by the wall,
Beckoned me beside him:
I came where called, and eyed him
By meanwhiles; making my play
Turn most on tender byplay.
For, wrung all on love’s rack,
My lad, and lost in Jack,
Smiled, blushed, and bit his lip;
Or drove, with a diver’s dip,
Clutched hands down through clasped knees—
Truth’s tokens tricks like these,
Old telltales, with what stress
He hung on the imp’s success.
Now the other was bráss-bóld:
Hé had no work to hold
His heart up at the strain;
Nay, roguish ran the vein.
Two tedious acts were past;
Jack’s call and cue at last;
When Henry, heart-forsook,
Dropped eyes and dared not look.
Eh, how áll rúng!
Young dog, he did give tongue!
But Harry—in his hands he has flung
His tear-tricked cheeks of flame
For fond love and for shame.
Ah Nature, framed in fault,
There ‘s comfort then, there ‘s salt;
Nature, bad, base, and blind,
Dearly thou canst be kind;
There dearly thén, deárly,
I’ll cry thou canst be kind.

19. Brother and Sister

       by David Herbert Lawrence

The shorn moon trembling indistinct on her path,
Frail as a scar upon the pale blue sky,
Draws towards the downward slope: some sorrow hath
Worn her down to the quick, so she faintly fares
Along her foot-searched way without knowing why
She creeps persistent down the sky’s long stairs.

Some day they see, though I have never seen,
The dead moon heaped within the new moon’s arms;
For surely the fragile, fine young thing had been
Too heavily burdened to mount the heavens so.
But my heart stands still, as a new, strong dread alarms
Me; might a young girl be heaped with such shadow of woe?

Since Death from the mother moon has pared us down to the quick,
And cast us forth like shorn, thin moons, to travel
An uncharted way among the myriad thick
Strewn stars of silent people, and luminous litter
Of lives which sorrows like mischievous dark mice chavel
To nought, diminishing each star’s glitter,

Since Death has delivered us utterly, naked and white,
Since the month of childhood is over, and we stand alone,
Since the beloved, faded moon that set us alight
Is delivered from us and pays no heed though we moan
In sorrow, since we stand in bewilderment, strange
And fearful to sally forth down the sky’s long range.

We may not cry to her still to sustain us here,
We may not hold her shadow back from the dark.
Oh, let us here forget, let us take the sheer
Unknown that lies before us, bearing the ark
Of the covenant onwards where she cannot go.
Let us rise and leave her now, she will never know.

20. Beloved Brother

       by Anonymous

To my beloved brother, dear and true,
I wish to share these feelings with you.
My love is constant, both day and night,
In every weather, your smile is my light.

I cherish you when joy fills your eyes,
And in moments of sorrow, I empathize.
Whether outdoors or by fireside’s glow,
My love for you continues to grow.

Awake or in dreams, my love stays near,
In every moment, my sentiment is clear.
What I’m expressing, undeniably true,
Is that I LOVE YOU, forever and through.

Always and eternal, in my heart’s embrace,
You hold a cherished, enduring space.

21. For My Brother, From Your Sister

       by Michele Meleen

For My Brother,
I will fight through my tears
and tear down my sadness.
I won’t let them stall out my life.

I will fight through my fears
and knock out my anger.
I won’t let them ruin my life.

I will recall our years
and remember you with joy.
I’ll let your death be a part of my life.
From,
Your Sister

22. Never Ending Rain

       by Kristi Maxim

You had to go and that is understood.
Things just weren’t right here for you.
The feeling you have given me
Has left me alone, standing alone.
I’m almost certain that you can see.

During your absence it has given me time
To think of ways I can escape this.
To run away from the pain.
Nothing ever seems to work
It’s almost like a never ending rain.

With you there and me here standing alone
I worry for the day to come
The day when we are further apart
You won’t be there in the coming year,
To help me through things, but you’ll be in my heart.

There is also a fear of being detached,
Of being separate for so long.
We have progressed through the years.
The times we have shared merely brightened my day
And now all I can do is shed the tears.

The hurt that I am feeling right now,
I know that you can feel it inside.
But I want you to remember that once it’s through,
You’ll always be my big brother,
Someone whom I will forever look up to.

It leads me through the darkest night.
