surmai shaam

 

surmai shaam is tarha aaye
saans lete hain jis tarha saaye

koi aahat nahi badan ki kahin
phir bhi lagta hai tu yahin hai kahin
waqt jaata sunai deta hai
tera saaya dikhai deta hai
jaise khushbu nazar se chhu jaaye
saans lete hain jis tarha saaye

din ka jo bhi peher guzarta hai
koi ehsaan sa utarta hai
waqt ke paaon dekhta hoon mai
roz ye chaand dekhta hoon mai
aaye jaise koi khayaal aaye
saans lete hain jis tarha saaye

– gulzar

as the dark evening approaches, in this heart of mine, there is total silence. a silence that sears through my whole being, a silence in which even shadows are heard breathing, a silence in which time leaves behind footmarks. a silence in which the moon passes by, like a thought rising and falling.

despite the noise of the world, a total silence persists. only your embrace can fill it. only your love can pour life into this empty vessel. only your presence can make this body come alive again. i wait.
