The Power Of Siblings

Sibling relationships…outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust.

(Erica E. Good

Below is a little poem which shows us that when push comes to shove you’re there for your siblings!

Sibling Rivalry

They fight like siblings everywhere.
I used to reprimand,
But now I let them settle it;
I’ve come to understand.
No matter how loud they might get,
When “push” might come to “shove,”
My oldest two will soon show me
How deep and true is love.

For though these two might argue and
Each claim the other’s ‘mean’,
Nobody else had better try
To ever come between.
They fuss like cats and dogs, but then,
They soon forget who’s right,
If someone hurts just one of them,
They’ll instantly unite.

How wonderful is loyalty
That never ever ends;
For certain they both know inside
That they’re forever friends.
