Dear, Little Sister,

I know I left; no trace, no goodbye
You were never the same after that day
I wanted to jive with you one last time
But, I didn’t know it myself

You screamed my name out loud
The echoes still ring in your heart
I miss you too, little sister
But, I didn’t know it myself

We built a tent in the corner of our room
Pretended it to be our new, tiny house
I know you haven’t felt at home ever since
But, I didn’t know it myself

I see how strong you’ve become
How you carry softness and fire in your heart
I wish I didn’t leave you that day
But, I didn’t know it myself

You think I’m in a faraway land today
But just place your palm on your heart
Close your eyes; I’m right here, and I’ll always be
This I know, this I know
.
.
A poem he never wrote. But I know these are his words; my heartbeats recited them. It’s true…he lives there. Happy 34th, Abhi!
