A girl who was in trance

Unaware drapes of thoughts

Flew to pursue her dreams

Efforts , tears, gloom and wishes

Swallowed senses narrow world

She, herself and her dreams.

A white star in the sky rose

Glanced the fair labour

Smiled over the failed efforts

Caressed thoughts silk hair

Ensued longing smile fruitless

Moved on enclosed world.

Flew passed time came

Real dreams with memories

Shook the very ground shatter

The veil moved apart

Eyes saw through mist back

The shadowed bead up the sky

Returned senses pained the self

Cursed the soul the lost past.

Reminiscence worth thousand pearls

Filled the widened intellect

The star to reappear strong desire

Fervour but altitude unattainable

Still glance up the sky

A narrow beam of hope

For the universe that cared.
