Jo main kehna chaau…

The last time I wrote a poem in my corporate blog, a colleague asked me if it was possible to write one where we express love without the use of lovey-dovey words like Pyaar, Ishq, Mohabbat, etc…
So this is my attempt at that… πŸ˜‰

love
**************************************************
Main tumse kuch kehna chahta hoon jo…
Jaane kyun nahi keh paata hoon woh!
Kahu toh main kaise kahu…
Keh bina rahu toh bhi kaise rahu!

Jal rahi hey jo aag kab se…
Bayaan main kaise karu tumse?
Ladta hoon main jagadtha bhi hoon khud se…
Fariyaad bhi karu toh main karu kisse?

Ishaare diye maine ek nahi kahi…
Par tum toh koi ishaara samjhi hi nahi!
Phool bhi bheje maine izhaar karte karte…
Samajh na paayi tum toh, toot gaya main sehte sehte!

Chal pada hoon main anjaane raahon pe…
Manzil ke talaash mein, tere hi sahaare se!
Miloo main tumse, aur kaash mein keh paau,
Umeed hey ki tum samajhlo, jo main kehna chaau! πŸ™‚

**************************************************
English Translation:
**************************************************

Whatever I wanted to convey to you…
I don’t know why I’m not able to!
How do I say, If I want to…
How do I stay, without telling to you!

The fire that is burning since long…
How do I express it to you?
I fight and I argue with myself…
Whom do I request, I do not know!

Signs I did give, not one but many…
But then you did not understand any!
I sent you flowers confessing it all…
But you didn’t cognize, and my stability did fall!

Now I am moving ahead, along unknown pathways…
In search of the destination, with you being my strength!
I desire to meet you, and I wish to be able to convey…
With hopes that you understand, all that I would say! πŸ™‚
