A hope that is more than a dream. Sometimes it is almost tangible, you can taste it in your mouth, you can feel it on your fingers. You can envisage it, that wish, that future that you so wish to have.
You can plan towards it, you can choose your path towards it. And all the time, the reality is just out of your grasp, cascading through your fingers.
Nothing more than a wish. Nothing more than wishful thinking.
