Aaj kuch likh de......

Aaj kuch likh de.....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de....
Zindagi chal toh rahi hai magar....
Ise thoda aur gulzaar kar de.....
Aaj kuch likh de.... Tanhaayi Khaamosh hai magar...
Lafz-e-mehfil se....
Ise chaar kar de...
Aaj kuch likh de.....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de.... Shaam beet rahi hai magar....
Thodi si dheemi yeh...
Raftaar kar de...
Aaj kuch likh de....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de... Aasmaa me taare tange hain magar...
Us suraj ko....
Bhi bulawa bhar de...
Aaj kuch likh de....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de.... Sapne badal ban hawa sang bikhre....
Un hasraton ko....
Aaj haqeeqat kar de...
Aaj kuch likh de....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de.... Kalam meri jo ruk jaaye kabhi....
Haath thaam gazal woh....
Tu hi puri kar de......
Aaj kuch likh de....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de... Koi lafz naa aayein zehan me....
Kora yeh dil hai mera...
Tu hi ise kitaab kar de....
Aaj kuch likh de....
Zamee ko aasmaan kar de.... Mujhse poochhle sab jo....
Dil me sawaal utthte tere...
Hain meri saanse, jawab-e-sawaal tere....
Aaj…

Oh! Come to Me......

Somewhere in those deep eyes......
Which imprison a secret inside......
I find a little scared child......
With those tears in the eyes.....

Oh! Come to me......
Nothing is so close like me.....

Oh! Come to me.....
Why are you afraid of me?

Just hang in those dreams....
Clinging from those trees.....
Hopes that give you strength....
And that never which ends......

Oh! Come to me....
Nothing can be so deep.......

Oh! Come to me.....
What are you thinking?

Just stay like in the rain.......
Those clouds  will go away......
Like a beautiful rainbow.....
You can hold on your gaze.....

Oh! Come to me....
Whenever you need me.....

Oh! Come to me.......
If you just think of me.......

I will be with you all the time.....
Till you want to say goodbye.......
When those smiles will reappear.....
And the tears you shed disappear......

Oh! Come to me......
Why did you think to leave.....

Oh! Come to me......
Should I expect you with Me?

Woh Musafir......

आज फिर ट्रेन में बैठी हूँ। और फिर वो मन्ज़र आँखों के सामने है  ..... 
ट्रेन की धधक धधक। …ओर वो गाना गुनगुनाते हुआ उसका आना .... पहले इधर उधर सीट ढूँढना और फिर ख़फ़ा सा हो के आगे की साइड लोअर सीट पे उसका बैठ जाना .... वहाँ से छुप छुप के देखना और आँखें मिलते ही मुस्कुराना .... 
आज भी कितना याद आता है....... तुम्हारा वो आँखों ही आँखों में  बात कह जाना ....  फिर मिलेंगे क्या ? हर लम्हा यही सवाल मेरे ज़ेहन  में आना ….. ना जाने कब तक, हम एक दुसरे को दूर से, अजनबियों की तरह देखते रहेंगे ....... 
"ऋचा ..... कहाँ खो गयी हो ?" "नहीं  यहीं हूँ.… बोलिए ना क्या हुआ ? " मैं ठिठक के पति देव से बातें करती हूँ और उन बीते पलों को थोड़े वक़्त के लिए दरकिनार करती हूँ। 
अजीब होता है मन .... जब लग जाए, तो लगता ही नहीं और न लगे, तो कहाँ लगता है?

 इस बात को आज 2 साल हो गये। 2 साल पहले यूँही अगस्त में , बारिश से बचने के लिए ट्रेन में चढ़ गई , अपनी सहेलियों के साथ। जाना कहीं नहीं पर चढ़ गयी .... सोचा चेन खींच दूँ और उतर जाऊँ .... पर हिम्मत ही नहीं हुई....  
भोपाल से हबीबगंज ज़्यादा दूर नहीं , पर वहाँ…

My Shadow....

Image
In hope of the rising sun.....
The night dances with the breeze....
Shadows dance with darkness hand in hand....
All day, lying under the feet....

How come you are not hurt dear shadow....
Under my foot the whole day.....
Sometimes behind and sometimes ahead....
Yet in darkness, you become me and I become you....

Mingling in each other You my shadow...
And I the darkness I hold in me....
You are not a shadow but me ,that oblique...
Who fights to stay alive like me....

Mirroring my reflection on the floor...
Making the floor know more....
You are not a body,yet....
You are me all the more....

You touch the ends of mine.....
Making a wish to join me back....
But not a moment I weep....
On this impossible opportunity....

In darkness, we are one....
You hide in me, I confide in You...
And what else I may choose....
You remain with me , I remain with You...

You leave me in brightness all alone...
And sometimes tease me, following me from nowhere....
And then you show me the way by walking…
