सवालों का सबब

Posted on

मुझसे ना पूछ मेरे सवालों का सबब,
तेरे जवाबों में बस ये रात कट जायें।

कहे–अनकहे ख्यालात मेरे,
तेरे ज़हन से, बे–तकल्लुफ़ बंट जायें।

दरमियान अपने दूरियां बेशुमार हैं,
दे सदा, ये कम-ज़र्फ़ दूरियां घट जायें।

बे–अदब निगाह तेरी, मिलती नहीं मेरी नजर से,
जो ठहरे दोनो साथ, वक्त सिमट जायें।

मुझसे ना पूछ मेरे सवालों का सबब,
तेरे जवाबों में बस ये रात कट जायें।

This is for the time when he/she asks you the reason for your random questions. Sometimes, it’s the concern, sometimes it’s curiosity. You may want to be a part of their life by asking these questions and live it with them, even from the distance. But then there are times, when you just ask the questions to keep the conversation going. In this moment what’s important is not what is being said in the conversation, but the sheer CONVERSATION. Keep it flowing!

खो गए सवालात

खो गए सवालात, तेरे नाम पे लगाए थे।

शिकवे – गिले कई हमने, दिल में दफनाए थे।

जो उतरे तेरी नजरों में, बस पिघलते रहे हम

मानो, जुगनू से पूछा – “तुम जगमगाए थे?”।।

We may have a hundred questions for someone close to us that we seek answers to. These questions, or grudges can pile up over time and compound due to the distance. May get a bit ugly too.

But as soon as you sit down – face to face – in peace with your coffee, things fall in place. You may realise that nothing was actually required to be fixed (at least not as huge a mess as you anticipated it to be).

Give yourselves some time.

The key – Just keep the communication going.

लिपटी रहती है चुप्पी, सर्द रातों के साये में,

गूंजती हैं खामोशियां, तन्हा रूह के परछाए में।

क़हर बर्पा सन्नाटों पर, जो तोड़ने लगे दम,

दिलासा ही दे जा तू, “फिर मिलेंगे हम”।।

This is when it’s been or it feels like an age when you’ve seen the other one. The nights have turned darker and more lonely. You want him/her to be with you even if you two are busy with anything (even not mutually inclusive), but just the sight of that person at an arm’s length is warm enough to keep you sane and feeling adored.

May these tough times pass by soon.

तेरी दूरियों की वजह से

सब सुनसान है यहां, तेरी दूरियों की वजह से.

इक तूफाँ है मेरे अंदर, तेरी दूरियों की वजह से.

सैलाब-ए-जज़्ब का रेशमी एहसास नदारद है मेरे आगोश से,

सर्द शाम की तपिश ले आ, जो दूर है… तेरी दूरियों की वजह से.

When distance starts taking a toll on your emotions. Is it really the distance to be blamed or the people?

सैलाब-ए-जज़्ब = Storm of emotions
