Immaculately dressed
Trying to impress.
You pass by my window

I watch you from a distance
My heart skips a beat
I wish you would come closer
You are sometimes within my reach

I stretch out my hand
want to touch
Just when I think I have you
You slip by
I am left alone
Waiting and hoping.

The butterflies like wishes flutter into our lives and we float in the ecstatic world of dreamz.. till it vanishes with the wind, leaving us only with the memory of how it felt to have a dream..
