Rispetto 01 : A Gift of Love


My brother, A gift of Love

My brother is small, not yet tall
So he is younger and I am older.
I love him like my doll,
So let him sleep on my shoulder .

We fight a lot
But to mother, always get caught.
Still on us, she is never rough
Brother and mother really are gifts of love.

Note from the poet :

The poem represents the endless love that exists between an elder sister and her younger brother. Tasmin Sheikh, a lovely young lady dedicated this piece of literature to her little brother, Tanjib Islam.

I hadn't come across this type of poetry. It's interesting and you've given us a good example. I might try some!

Families sometimes argue but come together when needed, especially older and younger siblings.

You summed up the essence of love. Truely having a family is a blessing.

What a bonding between your elder sister and brother. I do have a sister as well. And I love her the same way. But I am the elder one. Yet my love for her is unconditional like apu here. The poem gave me all smiles. Truely brother, sister, mother,father are epitome of love♥️
