Thousand dreams

I lit a thousand lamps
one after the other
thousand naked flames of dreams
into the fading sun
the warmth of thousand hopes
seem to smolder the darkness

But one flickering moment
is all that it took
to put the flames out
a gentle breeze
was all that it took

Few lamps lesser
twinkling at random
though it isn’t dark
a thousand lights
it isn’t

I tally the surviving ones
Nine hundred and ninety eight
it seem all is lost
for ,the two that are blown out
it seems
are the ones that matter to me the most

I light two more
one after the other
yet again
I have
a full set of dreams.
