Reasons for a Happy Day

Every start of my day

there is always someone to wish me a ‘Good Morning’,

even in her hurries,

turning my laziest start into a cheerful one.

This means nothing much trouble to her,

and I didn’t bother to tell her what it holds to me.


When I return home completely tired and lazy,

I get reminded of her who also returns home tired,

but never fails to join me in a game or a chapter,

changing my restless reason into an unmeaningful excuse.

This means no much trouble to her,

and I didn’t bother to tell her what it holds to me.


She never lets me down.

She never forgets to forgive before I ask forgiveness.

She feel’s I’m her treasure.

I shout at her, but she never shouts back.

I get possessive, but she assures me that she will always be there for me.


I never said my sister a Thank you for all this and many more she does for me,

I never will, for I don’t want to break this treasure of mine.
