Sia counts the lamps on the water & the stars in the dark sky. She wishes upon a buoyant lamp and a shooting star.
She remembers- once she wrote a poem, ‘Hope & Expectations’, on a lamp. She set the loaded lamp in the placid water. Soon the heavy lamp sunk, along with it sunk her hope.
Today she writes just one word – ‘belief’. She has tears of joy when she sees the lamp fighting the waves.
She smiles if the lamp can.. so can she.
