That moment.

“The moon was up, painting the world silver, making things look just a little more alive.”
N.D. Wilson, Leepike Ridge

And then I saw that star, the shooting star. A tiny, bright meteor heading for a fall, somewhere. It was a matter of seconds, but those seconds truly held eternity in them. Passing across the full moon, it disappeared into darkness, but gave me enough time in between to make a wish.
You know what I wished for?
I prayed in that moment, in that one moment that looked infinite to me, for you.

☆.

I wished for ‘forever’ too, so I kind of wasted it.

      Wonderful! Although wishes are never wasted… They give us the reason to live 🙂
      (And here I go directly against my sister 😉 :P… Bahut dinon se jhagaraa nahin kiya usse 😛 … Maria! I hope you won’t mind us fighting here ;))

          If you don’t wish, you are already dead…
          You should wish… but simultaneously should keep in mind that the wishes may not be fulfilled… In that way… you shall not be dead if the wishes are unfulfilled… 🙂

            -objection Mr. Arindam-
            If we keep that in mind ke ye wishes unfulfilled reh skti hyn, tou ye koi ‘positive thinking’ tou na hoi. Laws of attraction is if you’re wishing for something, do it with all your might, put in all your efforts and CONCENTRATE on that goal. Say no to ‘no’.
            So there’s a chance to feel ‘dead’ either way.

    Wishing on falling stars takes many of us to a place where, when we were children, we suspended reality and dove into the world of belief, and make-believe, without questioning it. What simple and wonderful times. My wish, on the star you saw falling, is to go back to that place.
