Happy Birthday!!


Life is like a movie, they say

Every second I’d like to replay

Every moment with you is a memory made

A memory that will never fade.


The movie must be a box office hit

A voice like yours makes every musical lit!

With a face like yours, every scene is bright

Although, I doubt you sang the lyrics right!



Casting you was the best decision

You’ve done all your scenes with such precision

Why, you’ve helped me with directing, too!

I would have lost my chariot’s reins if it weren’t for you.


Every time my feet left the ground,

To bring me back, you’ve been around.

Each time I needed advice,

Your words of wisdom would make me rise.


The scene may display euphoria or trauma

You’ll pull it off with a flair of drama

All “action scenes” end with our apologies

To smile with you, I don’t need to say “CHEESE”.

You are the only symphony

In this room of cacophony

The similarity in our choices

Blend two different voices.


You may not be pure and giving

But you’re one of the reasons I like living

I fear that our movie is too fast

I fear if our camaraderie would last.


You‘ve turned twenty after all

And I can’t even go alone to the mall

I’m still a kid, Mom would say

But I know that would never come in our way.



There are zillion memories to make

Numerous birthday cakes to bake

More space to fill in our bowl of bliss

A very happy birthday to you, Sis!




Hey guys!

This post is dedicated to my sister, Riya, the person who had motivated me to start blogging in the first place. She has always inspired me to be better, taught me lessons that no teacher has and has been the best-est friend I could ever have! Thank you didi! Happy 20th Birthday! May the coming year be LEGENDARY! I love you…

    Wow! One couldn’t have asked for a better gift I suppose! It’s amazing and since it’s dedicated to your sister, I’m gonna stop being a critic for once and simply praise you for your work.

    Oh and BTW do wish her a happy birthday from my side too! (Although I guess it’s belated by now😅…)

      I can’t say I’ve done much except for encouraging and giving her the push that she needed. But I’m glad she is doing so well in this and that she met people like you. 😁

    That was absolutely adorable.
    I know I’m late to the party, but I hope your sister has a great year.
    I knew something was off, because I remembered you being younger.
    A great poem.
