Little Brother...

Just like that i was no more alone
You came in and shared my throne
I frowned when you got all attention
Little brother, I grin when i mention

When you hadn't grown enough to speak
I dumped all my misdeeds on ur streak
You didn't understand what was going on
Little brother, I know that was wrong

Boats and planes we made of paper
Bon Voyage none the lesser
On the terrace under a blue sky
Little brother, our kites flew so high

Knight in armour and half naked wrestler
If it was thrilling we imitated it later
We fought to remotely control the television
Little Brother, bring forth the summer season

Frolics we had under the scorching sun
Battles we fought just for fun
We drenched in rain coming back from school
Little Brother, we broke a few rule

Years rolled on and i went to college
Leaving all behind for you to forage
I couldn't help, it was the usual trend
Little Brother, you were more than a best friend

I don't know how i did as a big brother
I sometimes sit back and remember
Nights we sat on the balcony and sailed with the clouds
Little Brother, whatever you did you made me proud

Life will take us thousands of places
Sometime go back to where your mind traces
Faded moments and boundless laughter will echo
Little Brother, May you find happiness wherever you go
