I love poems


Dear Students 

Today, I’m in a ‘poetic’ mood, and I have a lovely poem to share with you. Do read this one:

My Sister My Friend

by Zhai Dueñas

My beautiful sister

My beautiful sister

To me you are an angel in disguise.
Full of intuition, intelligent and wise.
Always giving and helping through good times and bad times.
You are the best friend I’ve ever had.

If I had one wish it would surely be
to give you as much you’ve given me

Though I’ve put our relationship through some cloudy days,
you’ve been my sunshine in so many ways.
Though trials and tests, right by me you stood,
and gave me your hand whenever you could.

Thank you so much my sister, my friend
My gratitude for you has no end….

Do send me your poem after you’ve written it. I’ll post it in Comments. It need not be very long, even 4-5 lines will do. The end-words need not rhyme, either.
