Poetry

​Under the blanket in chilling winter,
I write my poetry although my hands shiver,
Fingers have frozen like a stone,
My heart is still pumping blood in vein,

A memory from the past keeps me awake,
A memory that I try every night to forget,
Once I too had someone to express,
A special one to listen all my interests,
All I have now is my loneliness and my dreams,
I scare to share my thoughts no matter how mature it seems,

Evenings got washed, nights got changed,
Days passed, months did, years they became,
Writing kept me hooked all these years,
A purpose to live despite all the tears,
No drinks, yet I am addicted,
Noone around, yet I am seduced,

Now poetry is my life, poetry is my love,
I ain’t pleased with any other stuff,
I have found a new way to express,
Feelings that would otherwise have been dumped in distress.
At least it will never leave me ever,
I can write my heart out forever.

Deep down in your eyes,
I see there silent cries,
In the loneliness of your soul,
Don’t let your worries upon you crawl,
When you’re afraid of the rain,
You can just call my name,

Because our love is not selfish,
It is pure,
Look into my eyes,
There you will find,
My blooming love for you,

Walk with me into the mist,
To discover what your heart desires at least,
Our fates are entwined, as you see,
Like salt and water are mixed in a sea,

Because our lives are too busy,
And there is time passing by,
Open your heart and unveil what hides inside,
No matter what, I’ll be by your side,

When troubles seem to take a ride,
Close your eyes, you’ll see me fighting at your side,
When darkness makes you insane,
Hold my hand, you’ll be home again,

Because this is what love means to be,
To share ups and downs of the life’s sea,
And my love for you surpasses all,
I can’t ever let you fall,

With time you shall forget the past,
These memories do seldom last,
The only thing that remains
is we stood together in those hard rains.

So many words are there to say,
Yet they fail to express how I feel for you night and day,
Tell me how I express those feelings to you,
I wonder if you’ve even got a clue,

I have moved around the world,
Never found someone like you girl,
An eye contact with you just makes my day,
When you smile, I seem to lose my way,

So many words I want to say,
Something keeps me from you to say,
Tell me how I get outta this fear,
Save me from this pain to bear,

I see you pass by me everyday,
One half of heart wants to hide, other half wants to say,
I try hard to ask you out,
Sometimes in fear, sometimes in doubt,

I blink more often when I talk to you,
Does this gesture give you some clue?
Every night I keep looking at the sky in blue,
Has this something to do with those feelings for you?

Every encounter with you blossoms my lonely heart,
Rains of happiness are there in every part,
Tell me how I express my feelings to you,
I wonder if you’ve even got a clue.

Ek khwaab dekha hai maine kabhi,
Jahan tum bhi hogi aur baarish bhi,
Baarish ki boondon mein hum sang bheeg rahe honge,
Unn namkeen hawaon ki mehek ko mehsus kar rahe honge,

Tanha chaand ki roshni mein safed ret ki chamak hogi,
Samundar ki lahrein phir bhi ek azeeb si khamoshi hogi,
Ek khushnuma ehsaas aur ek andheri raat,
Aur taaron ki timtimahat tale bas hamara sath,

Kuch ankahee baatein hongi,
Hontho pe muskurahat hogi,
Aankhon me shararat hogi,
Mann me sugbugaahat hogi,

Aasman ko dekh hum gunguna rahe honge,
Uss anmol pal ko taare bhi nihaar rahe honge,
Raat ki chaandni mein hum khoye honge,
EK dusre ki baahon mein soye honge,

Karke saari bandhano ko darkinaar,
Lahraate samunder ke kinare hoga apna aashiyaan,
Mohabbat hogi beshumaar,
Jo ho na sakega lafzon me bayaan,

Bas intezaar hai tumhara tasveer se nikalne ka,
Tumse do meethi baatein karne ka,
Ek nayi zindagi jeene ka,
Ek naya rasta lene ka.

English translation
I have a dream sometime,
In which you are there, so is rain,
Drenching we are together in those raindrops,
Feeling those salty smell of breeze,

There is glitter of white sand in the light of lonely moon,
There is weird sereneness in spite of waves of ocean,
A feeling of happiness and a dark night,
And our togetherness under twinkling stars,

Some words unsaid,
Blooming smile on lips,
Naughtiness in eyes,
A little hesitation in mind,

Beneath the sky, there are us, lullabying,
That precious moment being stared by stars,
We are there, lost in moonlight,
Resting in each other’s arms,

Leaving aside all bonds,
Besides rippling oceans, there is our home,
Unconditional love beyond imagination,
Which can’t be described merely in words,

All I am waiting is for you to jump out of the picture,
To have a word with you,
To live a new life with you,
To take a new path with you.

Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun,
Har dua mein tumhe hi bas pucha karun,
Inn aahton mein tumhe dhundhta firun,

Teri parchhaiyon ka main pichha karun,
Teri har zikr mein main fikr karun,
Tu anzaan hai agar mere iss pyaar se,
Aa tujhko apni chahat se rubaru karun,

Ab toh aadat hai iss kadar tere sath ki,
Tere bin yeh zindagi hai bina saans ki,
Umeed ki sau kiranein hain palkon pe mere,
Jehn mein chhapi hai dastan ishq ki tere,

Main hun shayar tera, tu meri shayari,
Tu keh de toh likh dun main ik diary,
Saare panno pe honge tere ishq ki talab,
Mujhe zamane ki parwaah nahi hai ab,

Tu mera armaan hai, tu mera aasman,
Teri jaisi haseen iss jahan mein kahan,
Main toh zinda hun tere liye hi sanam,
Tu jo sath ho, mushkilein ho jayein kam,

Shab se subah tak tumhe socha karun,
So bhi jaun phir bhi tumhe dekha karun,
Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun,
Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun.

Na jaane kyun yeh dil har pal tumhe dhundhta hai,
Tumse kuch kehne ko yeh yun machalta hai,
Tu jo hai toh yeh saansein chalti hain,
Tere bin yeh zindagi adhuri lagti hai,

Har sheesha mein tera aks nazar ata hai,
Tere siva kuch aur samajh na ata hai,
Na jaane kyun yeh dil har pal tumhe dhundhta hai,
Har lamha bas tera saath chahta hai,

Khwabon mein kyun har roz tu a jati hai,
Ab raaton mein neend mujhe na ati hai,
To na ho toh yeh jahan veerana lagta hai,
Tera mera rishta sadiyon purana lagta hai,

Na jaane kyun yeh dil har pal tumhe dhundhta hai,
Tumse kuch kehne ko yeh yun machalta hai,
Tu jo hai toh yeh saansein chalti hain,
Tere bin yeh zindagi adhuri lagti hai.

In the night when clouds pass by,
Full of pain these eyes cry,
A faded picture of you appears on the wall,
Memories spent with you begins to crawl,

The beautiful spark that was between us,
Innocent blooming love that could make any soul jealous,
When everything was just going fine,
Why did our interests not align?
After all the caring for nights and days,
I still don’t know why we broke up and parted our ways,
I thought I would always make it right,
Never imagined you could ever be out of sight,

Although we argued and fought each other,
At the end of day, we were together,
Fights at dusk always dissolved with greetings of good mornings,
My days won’t be great without your morrow rings,

In the night when clouds cover the moon,
I ask myself, “Will it be all over soon?”
I don’t wanna live in this darkness,
When will moon of happiness tear down colors of sadness?

In the night when I stare at the roof,
I keep turning sides, coz sleep from eyes is unhooked,
Your sweet voice echoes from far behind,
Purpose of my life without you, where do I find?

In the dawn when sunrays brighten my face,
I check my phone accidently for your presence,
Then I realize those were the days of past,
Happy moments are ephemeral, they seldom last,

A feeling of emptiness after unheard prayer,
My life seems to crumble in despair,
With the thought of a moment spent with you, my heart dances,
I, sometimes wonder if dying love also has chances,

In the day when I smile widely outside,
There is nothing but a void inside,
If it were possible to rip heart out,
I would be the first to try it out.

I’ll reach to your heart
Coz I’m flying like a bird
Though the road is not that fine
I’m battling for what is mine

There is bloodshed and there is burn
The whole world is short for me to run
My mind has gone blunt and my eyes are shut
The wings of love keep me up

The cloud seems to hit me like big ocean waves
I have to face this, or I’ll break

I don’t know a hush descended where we are
If it’s an ambush I have to make it far
I wish the rain could wipe out the traces from where I’ve passed
Turn up the pages and give my life a new cast
Your mere presence could wake me up once before dying
That’s why I’m knocking your door, I’m still trying
The tears of hope won’t quench the fire till the sun shines
I will battle till my last breath for what is mine.

I’m here,
Do you know?
I’m waiting for you,
Do you know?

O oo oo oo o,

It’s been long since I heard from you,
I just wanna have a word with you,
All I wanna say,
I feel for you,
Only you and you and you,

Your silence is killing me,
Do you know?
I’m waiting for a sign,
Do you know?

Give a gesture
you are there,
Give a sign
the road is clear,
I’ll come all way
tell me where,

La la la la la la,

You feel for me,
Let me know,
Do you love me?
Yes or No?

Why don’t you say anything?
This much patience isn’t my thing,
Even a small sign will give a ring,
You’ve to believe, it’s not a fling,

I can see you
from my roof,
Give a gesture
it’s not a goof,
Call my name
I need a proof,

O oo oo oo o,

Can you see me?
Let me know,
Do you hear me?
Let me know,

I can stop at your door,
Ask for li’l love, nothing more,
But that’s not the way it’ll work,
This is why I fear,

I wanna let you know,
I just can’t let you go,
You’re a wonder,
Do you know?

O oo oo oo o,

I’m in love with you,
Do you know?
I’m waiting for you,
Do you know?

All the time
in rain and snow,
I’ve seen seasons
come and go,
I’m waiting for you,
Do you know?

O oo oo oo o
