Rakhee Poems :

Rakhi Day is Righteous Day

By –  Former President of India, 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.


Here’s To My Brother

Here’s to my brother

Remember every day

No matter what I’ve said

Here’s what I’d like to say

I will always love you

Be with you till the end

When no one else is around

I will be your friend

I love my brother

and I always will

I’m proud to be your brother

that’s how I feel And someday when we’re far away

And the miles keep us apart

I’m gonna whisper

I love my brother

And you’ll know it in your heart.
