Poems are personification of our thoughts for someone or something that we look up with fondness. They articulate our feelings so well that sometimes you just can't find a better way to converse. We still remember poems by great poets like Shakespeare, Robert Frost, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Munshi Premchand and others. Probably many of us have a hidden poet in our hearts; it comes out when we are extremely happy or very sad. Festival of Rakhi is the time of great joy. So, why not reveal our poetic traits? Dive into the pool of your imaginations and pen-down the best lines coming to your mind. The words of love and warmth are the best gift that anyone can give anyone. Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is the time of being nostalgic and remembering the good old days of childhood. So, get a little poetic and know what poems have in store for you. But, every one of us is not that good in writing poems. Don't feel disheartened, browse through our collection of famous poems and select one for your brother or sister.
Popular Raksha Bandhan Poems
Brothers and Sisters
From where love came,
we cannot see: Perhaps, within us,
born and bred, Or taught to us at parent's knee,
Or instilled by God in heart and head.
Perhaps it sprang from some kind deed,
Which, long forgotten, yet has grown
To dazzling heights from one small seed
In the fertile soil of distress sown.
Respect rises up so far above
The pettiness of separate view;
Differences bow before a love
And friendship that is blood-bound, too.
May the bond between us stronger grow,
May I prove the fondness I confess,
Which my hand's service cannot show'
Nor my simple words ever express.
- Florence Sherrill Ferrell
You always looked after me,
For me you were always there,
I remember how you took care of me,
I never had to fear.
I never felt lonely,
Whether it was day or night,
Those days were really bubbly,
At times we would fight.
I thank the God up there,
He gave me a brother like you,
What more can I ask for,
There is no one like you.
You have been a real friend,
Guiding me all these years,
I have no words to thank you,
Those fond memories fill my eyes with tears.
A Sister is Forever
A sister's a sister forever
A bond that diminishes never
A friend who is kindly and caring
A sibling God chooses for sharing.
Few ties as deep and profound
And with so much affection abound
Though some thoughts are seldom expressed
Love endures and survives every test.
Of the constants that rest in the heart
A sister's a primary part.
She'll always be there when you need her
You listen, you value, you heed her.
As growth independence you ponder
Your feelings grow deeper and fonder
And life tells you one thing that is true
A sister's a large part of you.
- Bruce B. Wilmer
Rakhi Day is Righteous Day
This full moon day our hearts are in brim
Feeling of faith and serenity in mind.
We light the lamps and our hears glow
Radiance of happiness and peace are in flow.
Harmonious homes are like streams of joy
Flowing and flourishing the landscape en route.
Nobility in heart and character in deed
Righteous homes alone make a beautiful State.
Sisters will tie the thread on the brothers
Abiding them to do only what is right and clean.
Put the Kumkum and blessed rice on the head
Where will dwell right thoughts and noble action.
- A.P.J.Abdul Kalam
Growing up as kids we were blessed
To have come from a loving home
Parents that guided and loved us
And never did us wrong.
We had a beautiful childhood
Many memories we all hold
We've always had that sibling bond
That's more precious than gold.
Mom and Dad had it hard
Raising six kids way back then
But we never went hungry or unclothed
And their love was Heaven sent.
I'm thankful that we were loved
Something money could never buy
This was the richness that filled our hearts
Because Mom and Dad always tried.
Now as I'm getting older
I've learnt to appreciate things much more
I'm thankful we loved each other
And each one of you I adore.
Today I want to say to each of you
I Love You with my whole heart
I'll Love You beyond this lifetime
And my love will never stop.
- Ann Stareyes
