My Diary

Page I


    Jaante hum bhi hain tere wisaal ke baad kya hota,
    Ye KHush-naseeb to rashq hi se mar gaya hota.
    [ I know what would have happened after meeting you ]
    [ this lucky-one would have died of *excitement* ]

    Saari khushiyan jo maang leeN to koi baat nahiN,
    Chaar qatra hi sahi, mera kuch GHam bhi to liya hota.
    [ no complains if you have asked for all the happiness ]
    [ if only a few drops, would have taken my sorrows too ] 

    Apne chehre ki hasiN gar dil ka tabassum hoti,
    Khuda ne phir ye naqab kyoN diya hota.
    [ if the smile on my face showed the happiness of my heart ]
    [ why would God have given us this mask (face) ]

    Ek lamha aur jeene ke muntazir hum bhi they,
    Zindagi, toone mera saath to diya hota.
    [ I too wanted to live a moment more ]
    [ life, if only you would bear with me ]

    Char aaNsoo na bahate gar to koi baat na thee,
    Tukde sheeshey ke sahi, kuch afsoos to kiya hota.
    [ not that you would shed four drops of tears ]
    [ be it a broken glass, would have felt a little condolence ]

    Bas ek baar jo mud-ke dekh lete tum,
    Chahe jhoote ko sahi, mera dil to rakh liya hota.
    [ only for once you would have turned around ]
    [ even for a lie, you would have kept my heart ]

    Na zakhm hota jigar meiN aur dil mein ye khalish Kashif,
    Gar ek pal ko jo mera haath thaam liya hota.
    [ there wouldn't have this pain in my guts and burning in my heart ]
    [ if you would have held my hand for once ]
 
                                      - Kashif
