THE NIGHT IS MY HAVEN, MY SANCTUARY; IT CRADLES MY MUSE, MY VIGOR, MY SANGUINITY.
WHEN THEE AFTER DUSK COMETH LOOKING FOR ME, I REFLECT UPON THEE THAT'D COMETH ONTO ME.

The Fellowship

Friday, September 01, 2006

bas ek pal hi mila tha jeene ke liye
dekh unhein hanste, hum bhi muskuraliye
wahi pal mein hum ek dastaan likh gaye
dil mein unki apni pehchaan chod gaye...

ek andhiyaari raat ko roshan karne ke liye
kisi jugnoo ki tarah hum jalte chale gaye
ek pal ka aashiyaan dhoondhne jab chale
bhatakti raahon mein khote chale gaye...

phir ek titli ke dikhaye raah pe chal diye
baharon mein khushiyan batorte chale gaye
karz rahi yeh khushiyan jeewan bhar ke liye
lutate rahe apni jaan, woh chukta karne ke liye.

har aahat pe teri talaash hai,
door hokar bhi tu mere paas hai,
na yaad hume itna aao ke,
hamara dil humse puchhe ke dhadkan kiske paas hai...

Kho ke bhi tumhe, jahaan ko paa liya
Is pal mein saath na sahi, agle pal ka intezaar hai
teri yaad mein ek pal nahi
hazaron pal qurbaan hain

Read the post. But my rusty broken hindi would never do justice to such beautiful lines. Therefore, had to keep from saying anything at all.

Crouching Tigress said...

Man I can't write in my co-mother tongue(Kannada) or in Hindi! I wish I could write in Urdu though...

Seashells said...

@ crouching tigress
What's your other co-mother tongue ? Don't you think your french supersedes Urdu ???

Crouching Tigress said...

Duh ENGLISH!

Of course it does. I can write some stuff in French. But my grasp of Urdu aint pathetic. Also, I have known Urdu a lot longer than French.

Perspective Inc. said...

Nice....

Anu Russell said...

Seashells said...

@ crouching tigress
