A Symbolic Cousin (For My Cousin On Her 21st Birthday) - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam

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.

    A lovely tribute and finely constructed. Wouldn't be suprised if this one finds itself slightly amended onto a few birthday cards written by PH contributors.
    .... hope you sent it to her as an e-card! .
