Home > Poems > इख्तिलाज़….Restlessness



धूप की परछाइयों में सुलगता

एक  इंतज़ार  मुझसे  रु-ब-रु  है

शक्ल  मेरी  हर  ख्वाहिश  की

तेरे  चेहरे  सी  हु-ब-हु  है

दायरों के हर इल्म से बेख़बर

तेरी  हँसी की अंगडाईयाँ

पानी के पन्नों पर लिखतीं

ये मेरा राज़-ए-सुकूं है


मेरे   उन्स  की  शक्शियत  कुछ  इस  तरह

मेरे ज़हन  को  जिंदा  रखे  हुए  है

तेरी  बातों  की  चादर  के  साये  में

हर  इख्तिलाज़  को  रोके  हुए  है

बसेरों  की  दुनिया  से  कहीं  दूर

हम  दश्त-नवार्द  चल  दिए

तेरे  नूर  का  पाकीज़ा  एहसास

मेरी  इस्तिराहत  को  समेटे  हुए  है


The English translation of the above thought, for your perusal, is as follows :


Ablaze in the shadows of sunlight
a certain wait is known to me.
The face of my every desire,
just like yours, it seems to be.

There are no bounds known,
to the effortlessness of your smiles.
Drawn on the subtle watery pages,
is the secret of my peace, as I see.


The form of my love is such,
it keeps my will and faith alive.
Under the blanket of your words,
My restlessness seizes to survive.

Far away from this living world
we wanderers have a place of own.
This feel of the piousness of your aura,
saves my serenity from all the strive.

        It is, but you know what hindi roots can do. It is purely about the feel, nevertheless you made it look easy in the english verse. 🙂

    “Far away from this living world
    we wanderers have a place of own.
    This feel of the piousness of your aura,
    saves my serenity from all the strive.”

    your words painted a beautiful picture of your other half
    one who compliments your flaws, and keeps your heart safe surrounded by love
    Take Care…
