Birthday “WISH” of a Mom & Dad
Though you would be
We wish you would still
hug us as tight and say good night.
And when in doubt, ask for our advice.
And you would wrap your arms around our necks,
even in a swarming crowd,
without the slightest discomfort.
And you would still share
your never ending views and opinions about
movies, books, music,
guns, games, computers
and anything that matters with us.
And you would still tell a joke,
pull a prank and make us mad,
throw us a playful punch,
tickle and tease us a little.
And most important of all
Not be ashamed to show emotions
no matter who is around
like you always used to.
And remember we’d dread the day,
you would outgrow them,
you’d never be too big in our eyes.
BIRTHDAY WISH OF A SISTER.
The day we brought you home
When you were newly born
You were so little
I thought you were brittle
You were the cutest thing
The laughter you’d bring
And you were a smart one
We just knew that you were the one
I remember playing all alone
With no sibling to play along
And then my only wish was someone
I wouldn’t have to share with anyone
Then my prayer was answered
A little brother was granted
And the day you came home
Our hearts just felt so warm
The Chupa-Chups you always bribed us into
The ‘penthinis’ you always just clung to
The times you at once disappeared
And from under the chairs you reappeared
Even in those few bad times
You would always bring about smiles
With your jokes and clowning
We felt our problems trifling
I am not saying you are an angel all the while
And not that we agreed all the time
There were times you’d drive me nuts
And make me feel that I am a mutt
Remember the fights we always had
And all the times we made each other so mad
I am sure Thaththa and Amma thought
We just always yelled, screamed and fought
But we’d always stand up for each other
You are always my little brother
And whenever you need me
Just know that here I will be
When I remember now you’ve grown up
Seems like yesterday you were trying to stand up
But even though we are miles apart
Remember you will always be in my heart
This is to the best Malliya anyone can ever ask for,
WISH YOU A BLESSED B’ DAY MALLIYA!
Love you a lot
