She, who fought with the older boys when they were bothering you,
and she could not bear tears in your eyes.
She, who held your hand when you first walked into the school,
and promised that everything is going to be perfect.
She, who listens to you talking about bikes and dogs,
even though she is not interested.
She, who shares her music collection with you,
so you can act cool in front of your friends.
She, who helps you with the assignments,
because she can’t resist your puppy face.
She, who reads a lot of motivational pieces when you are feeling low,
only to help you get out of your sad mood.
She, who sits with you to watch your kind of TV series,
even though it’s not her taste.
She, who clicks tons of pictures of you,
for your perfect Instagram.
She, who sings a lot of stupid songs, loud
just to annoy you.
She, who covers up for you,
and help you get past those curfews.
She, who loves you the most,
treats you like a baby,
because she still remembers
how your tiny fingers curled around her finger
and she promised to give you the world.
She, who is your elder sister,
and always wants the best for you.
Thank you for reading.
