It is hard to say how much I love you
You might not believe it especially since I fight with you
But no matter how much we quarrel, I still adore you
Even when we don’t speak to each other, I like you
For a lot of good things in my life
I am grateful to you
I hope one day you can see through into my heart
And realize how much I am fond of you
And so …
As one more year in your life goes by
Remember to be happy instead of heaving a sigh
Think about the things that you have to achieve
Don’t abandon the dreams you weave
In your life may you always have your way
Happy birthday to my dearest sister, for you I will always pray
My sister is a gem, like, an actual gem. She’s the perfect example of beauty, brains and character. The funny thing about Kabuoy is, she used to be a not so good person. Like, we couldn’t have a conversation without turning it into a fight and boy did we fight! We kept the longest malice and she was great at it. She’d just x you from her memory and the thing would be paining me. She used to be real saucy and annoying you know, that child that fought with everyone, daddy, mummy, sisters, friends, etc without consequence but she always had the best friends. Those quiet girls who took all her sh*t and always begged her to be their friends again. I honestly couldn’t imagine marrying someone like her back then.
Fast forward a few years and the story is so different now, it’s hard to put today’s Kabouy beside the Kabuoy described above. She’s literally the sweetest and most humble of the both of us now. She has no appetite or energy to stomach any kind of fight that lasts more than one day. She’s very pleasant, a fantastic cook (like seriously!). Whenever an argument or discussion is escalating into a fight, she just finds a way to immediately turn it into a joke and we laugh and move on. On many days, I can’ imagine the Kabuoy I live with now is the same one I lived with my final year in school.
Over the past 3 years, she has changed into this absolutely beautiful woman, inside and out, she’s wiser, still intelligent (azzin efiko levels o) and a woman of God (when Kabuoyprays ehn!). I am so very proud of the wonderful woman you’ve become (even though I have somehow become the bad child…lol) and boy am I ever proud to be your sister. I’m grateful for all the time we have had together, our fights, our tears, our laughs, our trips, etc. I am grateful that I have such a strong ally, giving me sound advice like all the time, I’m grateful that even with all our roborebe, we still look up to each other, I’m grateful that you’re the one person who pushes me every time to be better, to aspire to bigger things, to demand respect and basically stand up for myself. Thank you for believing in me even when I don’t believe in myself.
I love you so very much sis, I wish you could see into my heart to know exactly how much. My prayer for you this day is that God would continue to mould you into the woman he’s making you into, that you continue to walk in the path that He has set for you, that you will soar high and continue to excel in all that you do, that you continue to grow in wisdom and knowledge, that God will in his own time give you that man that will cherish and compliment you in the best possible way. Dear sis, you are a star, a shining light and you will keep shining.
I love you titi lai!
