*We have always been close, we have looked out for each other even when we parted ways. The thread of love and care binds us together, I wish the thread grows stronger by the day.
*We have shared a lot of moments together and today is the perfect day to remember all those, we have shared joys and sorrows, we are each other’s strengths and we’ll continue to be so, even if we take our separate ways.
*You’ve done infinite things for me, I know your love for me is beyond imagination but I want you to know that I am blessed to have you.
*You are my partner in crime, you have always had my back and you are my go-to person every time I am in trouble. Thank you for being there, hulk.
*If I had a choice to choose you as my brother in the next life as well, I would choose you for it, and for the next one too.
