Wish you were here …

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year

Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here

– Pink Floyd

A memory

A southern trail, in early winter wasn’t enough,                                                                  The calmness of shore wasn’t enough,                                                                     Absence of people around me wasn’t enough                                                                Never before but words were not enough                                                                                I will remain here, waiting…

Pleasure of senses did not remain there for long,                                                        Friends were missed at first, but sharing was at the heart of it                              Something changed, a connection made                                                                            But soon memories will fade away                                                                             Beautiful motherly wishes traveled with me                                                                        And then, wistfulness came along                                                                                            I will remain here, waiting…

In a troubled time, strangers provided many words                                                             But never became part of my journey                                                                              Many surprises along the way                                                                                            Yet, the lies and the social norms will always remain here, with me                           Nothing has been enough…                                                                                                    I, still, be waiting…

Stars are only companions, for now                                                                                        I know them, indifferent spectators.                                                                     Earnestness will never be found there,                                                                              only mystery has been filling the void.                                                                                       I will be waiting … for you !
