“To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect”
― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Behind a closed door
Inside a long beautiful veil
After a long wait
a glimpse of him
through that passing train

Pacing up and down the corridors
waiting to hear that soulful cry
Looking up and down the list
Searching for your name to come by

Praying with our eyes closed
waiting for that wish to come alive
waiting to be named 
in the nameless journey of life

Pouring your heart out to someone
waiting for a reply
Toiling your life and youth
seeking for a support in the
years that are passing by

We expect so much from
each fleeting moment
of our lives
Life seems like a big magic trick
between the expectations and the
and what reality brings alive.
