Whenever I’m asked to write about the happiest day of my life
I’d say it was the day my baby brother was born.
Yes, I was just 3 then and obviously I wanted a baby sister
If you asked me what I had for dinner yesterday or that where was I doing last week this time, I’d definitely freeze and say I really don’t remember
But then in that hospital that day
Oh how can ever I forget when I lay
My eyes first time on you
Those chubby cheeks
Those small eyes
Those small hands
Those small legs
I stood there in awe
When I realized what a cute little thing my parents got
Remember when we played 3 little pigs and a fox- yep we totally made up a game with pillows and sheets.
Remember when we skated up and down in the house
Remember when we splashed water on people from our balcony during the Holi fest
Remember when you pushed me all over the house on a plastic chair when my leg was plastered
Remember when as soon as my school finished I came to pick you up from yours and held hands until we reached the car?
Remember when…. do you?
Or you just recall the fights we had
Scratching nails and throwing things at each other
Telling on one other when we promised we got each other’s back
or just remember me telling mom no I don’t want to take my little brother to my friends birthday party
I would see you there with a smile, hoping i would lend you some of my time
It’s the Sibling love they say
I know you have patience but I don’t
If all the times we missed fun cause of me I’m sorry I was a growing kid too and didn’t want to be responsible with you
But now when I look back and see,
I know you’re the best friend ever of mine there shall be;
So cheers to all these years together
And more to be ;
Thank you for all little things you did for me .
He’s the only one I’ve ever shared the mothers womb with;
And yea same DNA same blood;
I love you unconditionally ❤️
