Heart wants what it wants


I used to run along and wave
At the fast moving trains 
Thinking that the people inside 
Would be waving back at me

I used to look up and shout
At the zooming airplanes 
Assuming that the people flying
Would see me from miles above 

I used to climb up the stairs 
And stare in awe; and blink
At the twinkling stars; thinking
They were winking at me 

After all these years
Now I know, I was only trying to believe 
What my heart wanted to believe 
Notwithstanding the actual truth

And yet, I still look at her all day
Admiring her moonshine eyes, 
Her beautiful bright smile
Her hair silky, as long as the Nile

After all, 
The heart wants what it wants.
