Brother! this silken tassel,
is for you dear; for everything, you did for me.
I remember the days when you
solved my problems and when every grief of mine,
you would bear.
You couldn't see the tears
in the eyes of your sister.
That was the bond of love and care.
I have seen you care like a mother,
teaching like a father.
You taught me about everything
being kind and compassionate was your nature.
Don't understand it as just a silken tassel
it is my heart and my feelings.
My love will always be with you.
You are next to my mother
my dear brother
