“I Wish I Had a Sister”

A poem by Kristina Kugaevskaya

I wish I had a sister

Who would kiss my scraped knee,

Who would  firmly hold my hand,

When the world was too much for me.


She would let me cry my heart out,

And tell me what to do,

When the girls would all act funny,

Or when boys made me feel blue.


She would teach me how to drive,

And cook, and observe, and charm.

She would be my confidant,

She’d protect me from all harm.


She would tell me all her secrets,

Organize sleepovers at night,

When we’d giggle and we’d gossip,

Until the morning light.


She would tell me why “all men”

Before it was too late.

She’d prevent me from being stupid,

From succumbing to a woman’s fate.


I wish I had a sister,

Who would tell me what to do.

But because the world is cruel,

All alone I’ll make due.
