Oblivious to what a relationship
let alone friendship meant,
we built houses in the sand;
we fought over who called shotgun
for a ride to school and back home;
we whispered secrets into each other’s ears,
swearing not to let it out
in front of anyone till eternity;
we took pride in all those shenanigans
that our dauntless-mind-of-that-time performed;
reminiscing which makes me realize
that the best and cherished days of my life,
are an amalgamation of moments trifle,
that have eventually blossomed
into what I now know as “life”!
Today, as you turn a year older (let’s face it!),
and a year wiser, prettier and so much more,
I am going to stuff myself with all that is sweet,
and only wish that you get all that you desire!
Today, as you also enter into a new phase of life,
I am so overwhelmed (I can’t imagine how much you are),
exhilarated, my exuberant heart so full of pride;
and from miles away, I send nothing but love to the bride!
