Cynosure of all eyes,
I was, for three years long,
Soon, I heard joyful cries
‘Look sweetie, your brother is born’.
Tiny little hands, minuscule fingers,
So delicate he was to hold,
In the hospital, by his side, I lingered,
‘Let him sleep, honey’, mum told.
I got my first & only sibling,
My very first friend,
This was just the beginning,
Of a friendship that would never end.
Sharing toys and chocolates,
He was my partner in crime,
That hasn’t changed till date
Along the years, over the time.
Once a kid, now fully grown
Into a tall, handsome man,
So quickly, the time has flown
Twenty years is a long span
But, even after twenty years,
Our bond is very much the same
Still reveling, fighting, sharing tears
Pulling each other’s leg, calling names !
I don’t get to see him much
Away from home, I live
But I always keep him in touch
Sense of closeness I want to give.
I want him to be successful
And lead a happy, sanguine life
Filled with pride and joy, blissful
Complete with children and a caring wife!
A Proud sister, I will always be,
I want to see him rise and shine,
Apple of my eye, he will always be
No matter how old he is, brother mine !!
