A Tribute to My Comrade Sisters

I am sitting down with my pen, in a faraway land For many days, I recalled my memories, That faded with poor calories I want to share the aesthetic childhood spent in the lap of a maternal knighthood. They are my sisters sent from heaven, with so many magical possessions They stood through thick and thin, like the mighty Jhansi queen Two are identical, one is a reflection There are the three famous sisters from my aunt *****sapiens confused them often with a single glance Two of them dressed alike, they played and ate together but they are not two but one, each other's forever Popularly called Sonika & Monika, The younger sister is their Veronica She is soft, gentle and shy but has a soul of a samurai She is called Minakshi, popularly known as Mini and I am their little cousin sister Bini :-) I remember those summer vacations, spent in Bhaskar nagar nation I waited for the birds to start chirping so that I could cross the street and go searching, I stood up on my dearest bench, scanning through my sister's fence And there I went chorusing and chanting, Sonu, Monu and Mini didi (elder sister) My whole neighborhood went geeky and knew it was me, the cheeky. I spent my vacation in their lovely abode, where I had infinite love that always snowed My aunts and uncles would crack funny jokes, that always gave me an energy dose Soon, when hours went on passing like years, My mother would come look for me with spears As soon as she used to step inside, She would turn into a hybrid Instead of lifting me up and giving me fiery eye balls She would join her siblings for a comedy intercourse Together we all used to have hearty roars and some moments completely enamoured. Now after those lovely years, when we all grew up here and there I see my three strong sisters, combating all odds and fears She sits there, in the infirmary like an invincible Buddha Sending the Cancer to the triangle of Bermuda Thus it will never find a way back and face a drastic end, because you collided with the wrong sisters, my friend. She will defy all the probabilities, with her strong capabilities She will be the face of everyone who fought cancer like warriors. She is none other than, the creator of stronger than cancer She is Monika, the fighter Along with Sonika & Minakshi, the Avengers. And I am proud to be called their baby sister.
