Hi YOU, UP THERE!
Hope you are well settled and are having a much greater time than you could have down here. I know it's a little too late to write to you but then I have lately been thinking a lot about you and how when you were here, I never wrote to you or gifted you anything.
I don't know if I was ever too close to you but I always felt that when i would visit the house, I would find you in the kitchen, that once you find me there you will try to extract some gossip from me and would make my favourite dish of dal tadka and parotha. I always thought you were a gossip and was a little wary of you. I also thought you were a little OCD, not touching the telephone, not using the same bathroom as others, not letting us touch any utensils, etc.etc. However, I loved your welcoming nature and warm heartedness. You always treated me as your own and did those little things which young people at my age forget to appreciate.
I never missed you much while I was away. I guess, I knew that I would find you in that kitchen, no matter what. But now, I don't like visiting the house and I hate entering that kitchen. i still hope that you will be there, waiting for me, cooking that dish. The last person you expected maybe, but I miss you a lot. I can't stop thinking of you. Every time I am alone and can't sleep, I close my eyes and the first person that makes a grand entry is YOU! I still can't figure out why of all people who loved you so much more, have you chosen me. I have stopped crying and now your grand entry in my dreams is more comforting than distraught.
So, wherever you are, may you be at peace and I hope you are proud of both the kids.
