    I thought you know how much I love you
    So that you know you can turn to me,
    Believe that I can solve all your problems
    Because I've been through them too.
    I don't want to obstruct your growth,
    I know you have to learn your way;
    But how can I stop worrying about you -
    The little girl I've seen grow night and day.
    I miss seeing you grin all day long
    And never go to your room even when you were told;
    Now you choose to keep your door locked,
    And not come out till your dinner turns cold.
    I wish you wouldn't trust people so easily,
    I know how it feels at your age...
    I know you hate me when I stand in the the way,
    But to protect you, I shall bear your rage.
    I know friends are all important for you now,
    And it feels like only they can understand you;
    But believe me there's nothing like family,
    Believe me I've been through this time too.
    I was your age not too long back,
    So I know everything you're going through;
    I just wish you'd have more faith in me,
    I would never mean any harm to you.
    I'm proud of what you are today
    A lot collected than I was back then,
    You're beautiful and so very talented -
    In my books you'd always get a perfect ten.
    Let arrogance not hide what's there to see -
    There is a lot of love waiting for you;
    You may not see it right away sis,
    But your big sister I shall always be.

      Oh Lord...15-16 yr olds!! All kids should be buried when they're 10, and dug up at 20.

      Hi ,

      I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘rewind’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

      BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

      This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)
