A Symbolic Cousin (For My Cousin On Her 21st Birthday)
You are a wonderful friend,
A great companion too.
Sometimes a tiring journey wears a person out,
Strangely all that changes when I am around you.
At times we laugh together,
At times we cry too,
But all of it becomes worthwhile,
When I am around you.
A cousin only have you not been,
A beautiful symbol too.
Of motivation, hope and truth,
I hope you know that too.
A nice poem is not enough,
To express all I have to say.
But I just want you to know,
That for you I will always pray.
Now that you have attained the key,
A key to your next phase of life,
I wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY,
And a long blessed life.
