KABHI KABHIE

kabhii kabhii mere dil me.n khayaal aata hai Sometimes the thought crosses my mind
ki jaise tujhko banaaya gaya hai mere li'e that you've been made just for me.
tuu ab se pahale sitaaro.n me.n bas rahii thii kahii.n     Before this, you were dwelling somewhere in the stars; 
tujhe zamiin pe bulaaya gaya hai mere li'e... you were summoned to earth just for me...
kabhii kabhii mere dil me.n khayaal aata hai... Sometimes the thought crosses my mind
ki yeh badan ye nigaahe.n merii amaanat hai.n... that this body and these eyes are kept in trust for me...
ye gesuu'o.n kii ghanii chha.nv hai.n merii khaatir that the dark shadows of your hair are for my sake alone,
ye ho.nTH aur ye baahe.n merii amaanat hai.n... that these lips and these arms are charged to my care...
kabhii kabhii mere dil me.n khayaal aata hai Sometimes the thought crosses my mind    
ki jaise bajtii hai shahanaa'iyaa.n sii raaho.n me.n... just as the shehnaii sounds on the roads...
suhaag raat hai ghuu.nghaT uTHaa rahaa huu.n mai.n... that it is my wedding night, and I am lifting your veil...
simaT rahii hai tuu sharmaake merii baaho.n me.n... You're shrinking for shame, blushing in my arms...
kabhii kabhii mere dil me.n khayaal aata hai Sometimes the thought crosses my mind
ki jaise tuu mujhe chaahegii umra bhar yuu.n hii that you'll love me like this our whole lives through,
uTHegii merii taraf pyaar kii nazar yuu.n hii that you'll always lift a loving gaze to me like this.
mai.n jaanta huu.n ki tuu gair hai magar yuu.n hii I know you're a stranger, but even so,
kabhii kabhii mere dil me.n khayaal aata hai... sometimes the thought crosses my mind,

 

 MAIN PAL DO PAL KA SHAAYAR

mai.n pal do pal ka shaayar huu.n I'm a poet only for a second or two;
pal do pal merii kahaanii hai my story will be over in a few seconds.
pal do pal merii ha.nstii hai My laughter is only for a moment or two;
pal do pal merii jawaanii hai my youth will be over in a few moments.
mai.n pal do pal ka shaayar huu.n I'm a poet only for a second or two.
mujhse pahale kitne shaayar aaye aur aakar chale gaye Many poets came before me, and after coming, departed;
kuchh aahe.n bharkar lauT gaye some went filled with sighs,
kuchh nagme gaakar chale gaye and some went singing songs.
voh bhii ek pal ka qissa tha They were only the story of a moment in time;
mai.n bhii ek pal ka qissa huu.n I too am only the story of a moment.
kal tumse judaa ho jaa'uu.nga Tomorrow I will be separated from you,
voh aaj tumhaara hissa huu.n but for today, I'm a part of you.
mai.n pal do pal ka shaayar huu.n I'm a poet of a moment or two, no more.
kal aur aa'e.nge nagmo.n kii Tomorrow new songs will arrive,
khiltii kaliyaa.n chunnevaale freshly bloomed blossoms to be plucked.
mujhse behatar kahanevaale There will be better storytellers than me,
tumse behatar sunnevaale and better listeners than you.
kal koii mujhko yaad kare Tomorrow, someone might remember me;
kyo.n koii mujhko yaad kare but why should anyone remember me?
masaruuf zamaana mere li'e For my sake, why should this busy world
kyo.n vaqt apna barbaad kare waste its time?
mai.n pal do pal ka shaayar huu.n I'm a poet only for a moment or two.
