Happy Raksha Bandhan

I grew up holding your hands
Oblivious of the surroundings..
My world was confined around you 
Obeying your mischievous errands..

I blindly followed you
Though mostly led to trouble..
With you by my side, felt as if 
I can win all battle..

We fought, we patched,
We were the worst of foes
And the best of friends..

As I grew, you protected me..
Like a father you cared..
Like friends we shared..

After Dad you silently took his place
And tried to fill the vacuum..
And you still treat me as a child 
Forget not, I am myself a mum..

I know I will always be
That little sister for you..
And you will always be 
My macho hero, bro..

On this special day 
Remembering and longing for you..
May all sisters be blessed with a brother like you..

Happy Rakhi Borda..
Love you and miss you always..

  15. Beautiful. I have a younger brother who makes fun of my poems but when he came to US for his BS, I wrote a poem for him and he wept after reading it. Your poem reminds me of that. Very touchy!

  16. A Heartfelt post! Lucky brother, and a lucky sister. Siblings fight for the silliest of things and get into trouble for it, but they are the ones we can trust and they are the ones who would stand with us, even when the whole world is against us.

    Wonderfully expressed :-)
