Whenever I look at your face lit

With annoyingly contagious smiles perched upon it

I smile because you are my dear sister

And laugh because I can do nothing about it


And I look on with reluctant resignation, when,

You fight, you mimic, and you pamper me,

And secretly amused by your company I grumble

When your moods change like waves on a sea


Now, though I’m known for my rustic humor

And my poetically tasteless articulation

Know that while my words be crude

My eyes shine with unspoken adoration


Since you managed to keep calm and get married

I crave for your now-dramatically-diminished company

I miss you so much from the bottom of my heart

That I’ll let you harass me with teeka and raakhi
