Dedicated to my dear sister- Abhilasha


As we fight over a  piece of the cake…

A little drama that I must fake..

Coz I am 23 and you are 12..

And so I’m the one who must dwell


We never share our clothes like other sisters do

Reasons being more practical than the lack of my dressing sense has got to do..

A steady 11 yr gap meant 2 cupboards filled to the brink

Mine with black,and yours still stuck up on pink..


And just like me, you may choose others..

to tell those things, you can hold no further..

But just in case you need a shoulder..

Remember your sister and that she’s older

And that she too was once as young as you

Although the things that happen to you may seem new


The years between us stay constant

A reminder to me, that I’m always the elder

Leaving you at home today, I went to a mall

Coz you don’t gossip and I no longer play with the doll….


They say there comes an age

Beyond which everyone is an equal

For you I shall wait at that threshold..

so that together…we can grow old..


I may not always say this but …I LOVE YOU. 🙂 :*
