I can’t believe I have blogged for better part of a year and haven’t mentioned Hobbes yet! (I call her Hobbes because I love to believe that I am the smarter one! 😉 )
I’ve realised one thing – Distance does make the hearts grow fonder. Or may be, this is just one of the moments when melancholy rushes over you when you think of her going away to another country pretty soon.
She’s been planning her MS for over a year now but now that the tests are done and acceptance letters have started coming in, the hazy picture of hers in a foreign place has started getting clearer. And proud though I may be, I feel lost at the same time.
My little sister is going away. A place where I cannot pull her hair or make silly faces or wear her new shoes before she can! A place where she cannot cuddle Happy when she wants or see him doing silly things that sends her to mad hysterical laughs!
Something I have never ever told anyone and sure as hell, I am never going to tell her is – she is the better version of me. More loving, more caring, more forgiving, confident, sexy and fun! Its like she has the best mix of qualities from our parents!
And she’s the only one before whom I am totally myself! Not even Simba! She has seen me fight unfair, be overcome with jealousy, distraught over exam-fever! She has seen me wear horrendous clothes (remember the cringe-worthy clothing of 90s?)!! And she’s still loved me. Always.
Here are few lines I dedicate to her (I’ve copied this from her various poems she gave to me 😛 Yes, I am as un-creative as they can get)
You are a part of me, and will never leave my heart, All the times we have shared, though we never really cared! Its funny how we argue at times, I guess its normal to show, But having you as a sister means more to me than you’ll ever know!
Fights and words, thoughts that been heard, my sister, you’ll always be a representation of myself and I know you got my back just as I got yours without anything to lack! Its sibling love ❤ ❤ ❤
Wish you the best of everything, forever. You are a soul to my life and I’ll always be grateful I got you! ❤
