We have 5.5 yrs difference. It seemed huge when we were studying in school.
We were always recognised as each other's sister.
In the corridors or with the teachers. Some told you not to become like me and some told me that I'm not like you!
How wrong they were! We are so similar, yet so different. You are and always will be my little sister. I am always the protector. Though you have done your share of watching over me, worrying for me...
As you fly away to your next great adventure, I wish you all the very best with all my heart. I was first afraid that things will be different from now. But, it's not going to be that way.
I will still think of shopping for you, still buy you junk that you definitely don't need but will always want just because I got it for you.
You used to come with me with your half-eaten lunch box... you were always a fussy eater and I always covered for you except about eating Curd Rice! I always got you into trouble for not eating it!!
You covered for me when it was most important. You helped me make the most important decision seem so easy.
I have always stood by the sidelines, never directly interfering with your growing up. I have watched you grow up into a beautiful woman, strong, determined and extremely head strong when it comes to wanting something.
I continue to stand in the sidelines, watching proudly, bragging to complete strangers even, about the full scholarship you have got, always ready to step up to take care of you.
As everyone worries about how you will settle down in your new surroundings, how you will adjust to the new studies, place and friends, I know perfectly well that you will be just fine.
I have assured ma, your brother-in-law that you are more than capable. the trust I have placed in you in so immense that it surprises me even sometimes!
All the best babe! I love you so much that it hurts to see you leave, but you have no idea how happy I am for you and so excited about the future you are shaping for yourself!
I am here, in the sidelines as usual. watching over you and wishing and praying for life's best!
Love you babe! :)
