Author: Catyrose


Every day you carry me
When others let me down
You hold me up
You fill my cup
With love that overflows

We stand together side by side
And manage through it all
As days go by, I realize
How fond of you Iíve grown

Who are you then?
You are my friends
My sisters near and dear
We stand together straight and tall
We heed each otherís every call

We cringe, we cry
We wonder why
Our path has led us here

To a lonely place
An empty space
No man can comprehend

Who are you then?
You are my friends
My sisters near and dear

We soothe each others fears
We wipe away the tears that fall
We rise above it all

Sister to Sister

This is truly an awesome poem, such depth and I would like permission to share this with my sorority sisters please

Guess your right. Can't comprehend. At first I thought this was a gay poem. Men try not to cry, shows weakness. Men play rough and tumble, shoot em up cowboys with each other. To smooth each others fears, not! We jump off bridges instead, fly on bikes, fear is what we need. Your right, some of us don't understand. Like your poem, but I think I'll stick to the brotherhood and play some smash em bang em football. You go girls! See you on the dance floor. Ha,ha, did I stir it up?

mars and venus?

No need to comprehend. Not a gay poem, just talking about women and the way we understand, support and communicate with each other. Thanks so much for your explanation about men. Some men, that is! I also know a few women who shed a tear now and then who play a pretty good game of rugby! You go guys! To each his own!!! :)

What A Beautiful Definition of Sisterhood

I am putting together a booklet filled with things of inspiration for our women's conference this month and would very much like to use your poem "Sisterhood". The conference is about bringing women of all walks of life together as sisters. We hope to encourage women to stick together rather than cat-fighting all the time. Life is too short and wonderful to waste on fighting with each other.

May God continue the gift in you.
Thank you
Catyrose ( -- Saturday, September 5 2009, 06:43 am

of course

you may use the poem. And I couldn't agree w you more about the need for us to stick together vs. the alternative :)
Thank you for your interest in the poem............
