Train Diary – 1; Dream v/s Reality

Train, when slowly arrives at the station, my heart fills with joy.

Whenever I arrive at this station, by the train, I can see her face wearing a beautiful smile.

It seems, for only me, her face appears at the station.

Today, in a crowd, I see that face standing immensely near.

The moment I extended my hand to caress her face, I woke up from my dream.

It is the same station; the same train. In a single breath, I rushed down the train and saw; it is the same crowd. But, her face cannot be seen.

My heart aches, as if part of my soul died.
