My dear brother


I admit I was elder but it was you who always acted like a responsible child. I was nervous; you were confident, I was reserved; you were frank and despite the age difference of five years you were my best friend.

I had complete trust in you. Once, getting furious, I was on the brink of losing my control when you came to rescue me. Holding my hand you took me into a garden. There we both planted flowers and you asked me to water them daily. I took great care of them and on that calm morning after taking their picture you never forget to remind me the importance of spreading love in life.

On that day, standing beside you, I promised that I would never lose control of myself again.

It’s been a long time and I’m still keeping my promise. I’ve selected my dress and soon I’m going to start my new life. I very much like you to be here with me but I’m not going to lose my temper. For, I’m aware that where ever I’ll go your support would always be with me.

My brave pilot, May you always fly high

Lots of love from your sister

  1. This is a wonderful story, Madeeha. Reading it gives one the sense of admiration and love between a brother and sister. There are times in our life when one small event can change our life in some way and he has helped change hers in a positive way.

    1. Thank you Deb, I like epistolary fiction and this time when I’m writing this comment Hellen Keller’s book the story of my life is placed in front of me. I like reading her letters again and again 🙂
      I agree, picture of flowers can take mind to some unusual places 🙂

      While wrting it, I was somewhat emotionally involved. Thought a gloomy end but picture of flowers didn’t allow me to do that 🙂
