How I wish I were an Albatross,
One which could fly high in the sky,
Crossing oceans separated by barriers,
While merging into the essence of travelling to different places...
How I wish I were a feather,
Forgetting what it meant to be bound to land,
Living the eternal bliss of dreams,
And then making my own way through the wind...
How I wish I were a frozen cloud,
Being born in the sky somewhere,
And then melting down to some point,
To reach my eternal destination...
How I wish I were a wave,
Resting for sometime on a forgotten ship,
Crashing against the shore in a minute,
And sweeping back to the ocean in another one...
How I wish I were a rainbow,
Setting in with the rainfall,
Growing through the sunshine,
Making millions of dreams come true...
How I wish I were a river,
Rolling stones as I keep flowing,
While bending around rocks,
Nurturing lives as I live myself...
How I wish I were a star,
Living in a paradise high up,
Making innocence survive through beliefs,
Falling down to prove the faith...
How I wish I were a ship,
Being lost in a stagnant sea,
And then setting off to nowhere,
Being lost in the sounds of waves...
How I wish I were a leaf,
Witnessing the world around,
And then being blown somewhere,
To find myself being reborn...
How I wish I were the wind,
Soothing every soul I meet,
Reviving each heart in the story,
Living different stories every moment...
How I wish I were a mountain,
Being strong enough to survive storms,
Growing a land around myself,
Making ways for warriors like me...
How I wish I were a forest,
Hiding secrets since centuries,
Being lost under covers of silence,
Revealing all to real seekers like me...
How I wish I were a lighthouse,
Guiding lost sailors in storms,
Projecting myself for dreamers,
Being a milestone in the ocean...
How I wish I were the night,
Watching the world go to sleep,
Wondering about the cosmos,
When I stay awake for them....
How I wish I were a feeling,
The one which completes humans in depth,
From ecstatic blessings to sorrows,
The one which remained forever...
How I wish I were a story,
Creating a never-ending chain of stories within,
The one which could not be bound to worldly instances,
The one which would always be remembered...
How I wish I were a moment in time,
Revisiting a memory lane to relive it,
Carrying within me a lifetime of happiness,
While living eternally in this universe...
