Sister (The Poem)

Updated on February 11, 2013


This poem was written on January 21, 2009. It was merely a week and a half after I was lucky enough to meet my four half-siblings, for the first time!

You can read my "Dad didn't know I was his...." hub for the whole story, but I wrote this to my new sister (she's the only sister, other three are brothers). Her and I had several personal, emotional, deep conversations and this is what I took back from our time together. This trip changed my life forever and I will never look back on the person that I was before.

Sister (The Poem)

As a little girl, did you imagine

You had a sister you could call

Would you dial your plastic telephone

And yell, "brother took my ball!"

Did you pretend that your sister

Would stand right up for you

She'd get that ball back from the boys

And give them a "talking to"

Would she brush your hair and talk to you

About what you love and hate

And did she have "the talk" with you

Before you went on your first date

Did she tell you that you were beautiful

Even when you had the flu

Could she put a smile upon your face

When you were feeling blue

Well here we are as sisters

A dream of ours, come true

Forget the moments that we've lost

Now you've got me, and I've got you

I don't intend to let another day

Go by without our family intact

As sisters we can show the world

"Those Derksen girls don't look back"

So you and I can share our dreams

And brush each others hair

Or sip coffee and play with our children

Anything....I will be there!!

by, Jamie

      Yes I did share it with her. She said she'll cherish it always. We have a beautiful connection, her and I. It's amazing. Thanks so much! Love your Fortune Cookie hub!
