A Note To My Beloved Sister - Poem by Sumita Datta

I still remember the day,
When my mom told us,
Soon our new sister
Will begin to stay with us….

You stayed with us only for a year…
But the bondage that shaped among us
Had never broken
Even after so many years…

Remember those days?
We used to spend together….
I still remember, we all four sisters,
Rarely, we fought with each other…

We used to play outdoor games,
Very often indoor too…
You used to take me for a ride in your bicycle
On the back carrier along with you…

Often, I used to feel scared of you
When you used to call me…
As you were a book worm
And I didn’t like to read the books that you would give me…

Remember the day? And that snap?
That four of us went to a studio to click…
That is one of my memorable days of childhood
I still remember, every part of it…

I don’t know what all you still remember of the past?
But I am sure you did not forget that day
(At night) you discovered the baby cobra on your bed,
As that is a truth, people cannot dream, in a way…

Spending a memorable year with us…
When you left home, for your education
Though initially we missed you a lot,
But gradually, we almost lost all our connection…

After a gap of two decades,
It is You, who tried to revive the relation, sister
As a result of that, along with our family
After 20 years, we are again together…

I am grateful to Almighty, for a sis, like you,
And your love and care,
As in today’s’ world,
Such strong relation is very rare…
