Wishes:

It would be music that sustained him;
long nights, and bursts
of breaking
the silence.

Somewhere,
between sunset
and sunrise
his thoughts returned
to far-away people;
solitary beings, just as relevant as he.

He pauses the song,
mid-lyric,
and reaches back with his mind;


a calm container
of wishes.

Very sweet, and profoundly moving.
And a very appropriate video with Pink Floyd.
