Wait For Me (3 Minute Documentary) from Red Light Films on Vimeo.
In 1985, a young man from a well-to-do family took a bicycle trip across southern Europe, wandered into Bangladesh, traveled through India, and vanished while hiking in the rugged foothills of the Himalayas. He was never seen or heard from again.
"Wait For Me" is the story of a mother’s spiritual and emotional search for her son—a ceaseless emotional trek, propelled by an unconditional love and an unwavering belief that he may still be alive.
This is a three minute piece but a much longer version is in production. More info @:
Wait For Me...
Wait for me, and I will return
Only wait very hard
Wait when you are filled with sorrow as you watch the yellow rains
Wait in the sweltering heat
Wait when the others have stopped waiting,
Forgetting their yesterdays.
Wait even when from afar no letters come to you
Wait even when others are tired of waiting...
And when friends sit around the fire,
Drinking to my memory,
Wait, and do not hurry to drink to my memory too.
Wait. For I'll return,defying every death.
And let those who do not wait say that I was lucky.
They will never understand that in the midst of death,
You, with you waiting saved me.
Only you and I know how I survived.
It's because you waited, as no one else did.
"In the February 1942.. "Pravda" (popular newspaper in USSR) published a lyric which immediately won the heart of our troops. It was "Wait for me". Soldiers cut it out of the paper, copied it out as they sat in the trenches, learned it by heart and sent it back in letters to wives and girlfriends; it was found in the breast pockets of the killed and wounded. In the history of Russia poetry if would be hard to find a poem which had such an impact on the people as "Wait for me". It made the soviet officer and Russian poet Konstantin Simonov, who wrote this poem to to Valentina Serova, - famous throughout the world."
