Wishing it’d come true

a poem by Lavanya Mouli

I sat wondering last night,
What life held for me to fight for
The shining stars, the lovely moon,
They gave me the hope that I had almost lost.
I felt like a child being lifted up,
And carried into the arms of the sky
Comforting me, and whispering to me,
The everlasting beauty of life.

Cuddling up into its sweet embrace,
I felt the corner of my lips curve into a smile.

For a moment, the sadness within me vanished into thin air,
And I played along enjoying the sweetness
And luxury I was surrounded with.
But soon, it returned making me wonder
How I’d go through this pain.

I prayed to the stars,
I prayed to the moon,
And everything else around me
To help me,
To save me,
From this treacherous pain.

I whispered a prayer to help me make
My dreams come true.
And I realized only then,
That I still had a spark of hope somewhere deep within me.

I closed my eyes and wished again!
‘Let this hope never die and help me achieve the impossible’.
