Between brothers

I wrote this poem as a birthday message for my brother Vijay. I had basically forgotten to buy him a greeting card in time for his birthday and so I tried to make up for the omission as best as I could. I then combined this poem with a childhood snap of the both of us to create a really memorable birthday card.

As rivals in our boyhood years,
We caused each other many tears.

A lot have our quarrels cost,
Many precious moments we have lost.

Yet memorable times too we’ve had,
Doing things that make brothers glad.

It’s those times I remember more,
Wishing in future the same galore.

So it’s fair you should know,
With you it’s been fun to grow!
