Dedicated to Jyoti:

Awkward at first
Formal talks exchanged at most
Unsure if compatible
Don’t even know if I’m likable

Lucky I am
you were such a charm
You reached out to me
even if I’m old enough to be your Auntie

What’s most important
a connection formed in an instant
So much we can Relate
meanings of our names even equate

Fate brought us together
only it has the answer
From across the globe I found a friend
for me you are a godsend.
