Love Prose

Dear Sweet Bro,

The truth is, you're the best sibling in the world. I can't even imagine my life without you. You're more than a father and a big brother.

You didn't in any instance let me feel the loss of our Parents. You worked tooth and nail to ensure that I got what I needed. We may not have all we want in life but I feel very fulfilled and satisfied because I have you.

You stood by me when no one else did. You acted like a mother and father to me. You'd face any student that tried to bully me in school. You'd hold my hands and tell everyone that I'm your sister. You'd scream to the streets that I'm the most beautiful girl in the world. I couldn't help the pink blush on my face when you praise me. I'd smile till my cheeks hurt.

You are someone that wouldn't mind starving to make sure that I don't go hungry. You'd stay awake and boil me herbs whenever I experience those monthly cramps. You'd cook my favourite and brag about your cooking skills. You'd spend time reading your past notes just to help me with my assignment. You'd protect me and fight the boys trying to woo me over. You would say that you cannot stand the boys pestering your pretty sister.

When you got admission to a college outside the city, I knew I would miss you so much...but who was I to prevent you from achieving your dreams?

You fell in love with Susan while in college. You studied together and you had been really close friends.

I was jealous brother, jealous that Susan was trying to steal you away from me, jealous that you didn't love me the way you used to because you had another person in your life.

You assured me that you'll still take good care of me and love me as before.
You both got married and relocated to another city, where you lectured in the same college you attended.

I tried to cope with living without you. I spent years studying in the Law school. Just like you did, I fell in love with an amazing boy. We got married years after graduation and bore our own kids.

We may not live together anymore but I cherish those moments we spend visiting ourselves and you, teasing me like you used to.
I love you so much brother and I want you to know that you're the sweetest in the world.
