Are there any visiting hours above there? I want to visit you to share so much just like old times. Miss our deep conversations.
From the day you started talking I was always longing to hear didi from you. But you never called me that. From very early days you called me by my name. I remember how I used to get irritated by this. But your naughty teasing smile used to melt my heart.
You were super cute child. With charming dimple on your face. Your first birthday was a big festival for us. From morning till late night our home was full of guests. Nani (maternal grandmother) gifted you a red coloured tricycle. You were very excited to see that. Parul and I went with our parents for your Birthday shopping. Those little things and that time of our life was happiest one.
Now nothing gives me happiness. You brought it in our life with you and took away with you all of it. Now life seems just incoming and outgoing records of breathes. I’m very lonely without you. Can you feel it from there?
Every morning when I wake up, it tooks me a few minutes to accept that you are no longer with us. Sometimes my ears ache to hear my name in your voice. I wish I had recorded your voice or made videos of us together.
God has not done justice. He should have allotted some more time to us together. But maybe a lifetime was not enough to spend with you.
Please choose me as your sister in each and every life.
Love you more than ever
Lonely and lost without you!
