A Thought

Ehsan Sehgal

I thought I will hug you
I will love you
I will adore you
But it was my thought
Only a thought
That often remains a thought
I take very care of it
neither to be damaged
Nor to be wiped out
From my mind
That thought is energy of my body
My heart and soul
And the light of my life
You know why
The reason is that
In my thought
You exist, you reside
I don't want to lose that
Though it is just a thought
But it is so sweet and wonderful
I want it forever
No matter it becomes reality or not
