Poetry is an important literary vehicle that helps the poet to reveal his/her innermost thoughts and feelings. Poetry has the power to evoke emotive responses. Thus, a poetry written by your own hand will definitely impress any listener whether it is your mom, sister, uncle or any other dear one. On this Rakhi, you can try something new - writing poetry or you can send some loving poems through messages.
Here are some Rakhi poetry mentioned below
1. ‘A Sister is Forever’ by Bruce B. Wilmer
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.
2. A Brother Just Like You
I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly
The many things you've done
All the times that you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care
Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a brother just like you.
3. ‘Rakhi Day is Righteous Day’ by A.P.J.Abdul Kalam
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.
4. Sibling Love by Ann Star Eyes
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.
5.A Sister Like You
Someone who will understand
Who knows the way I feel
In every situation
Her concern is very real
Someone who has walked my ways
Who knows my every need
Times when she would see me cry
Her heart would nearly bleed
Everyone should have a sister
Just the way I do
Richly blessed is what I am
To have a sister like you
6. My Sister and Me
we make time fly.
Best friends are we
my sister and me.
7. My Dear Brother
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.
8. Hindi Rakhi Poem by Monika Jain
Kacche dhago se bani pakki dor hai rakhi
Pyaar aur mithi shararato ki hod hai rakhi
Bhai ki lambhi umar ki duya hai rakhi
Behen ke pyaar ka pabitra duya hai rakhi
Bhai se behen ki raksha ka wada hai rakhi
Lohe se bhi majbuth ek dhaga hai rakhi
Jat-pat aur bhedhbhab se dur hai rakhi
Ekta ka path parati noor hai rakhi
Bachpan ki yadon ki chitrahar hai rakhi
Har ghar me khusiya ka upahar hai rakhi
Rishto ki mithepan ka ehsaas hai rakhi
Bhai behen ka paraspar biswas hai rakhi
Dil ka sukun aur mitha sa jasbaat hai rakhi
Shabdho ki nehi pabitra dilo ki bat hai rakhi
9. Brothers and Sisters by Florence Sherrill Ferrell
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.
