वक्त निकाल, बैठ कभी तन्हाई में।

हो तू मेरी, मैं तेरी परछाई में।।

हो जाएंगे शब-बाश, चढ़ते महताब के तले,

बस सर्द हवा में, तेरी, गर्म सांसें सुनाई दें।।

शब-बाश = staying overnight, cherishing nights of togetherness
महताब = चांद, moon

This is for the times when we realise that though we have known each other for years, it’s always interesting to learn more about the other one.
Also to point out, no time is enough to have each other and no time is less to cherish the bond.

We are busy with what we are doing at all other fronts but cherishing the bond is relaxing and celebratory.

Celebrations must not cease!

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.

तू रू-ब-रू

ना करूंगा तेरे आने का ज़िक्र, कि तेरी तरफ़ से पहल हो।

शहर दूर इतना भी नहीं तेरा, कि राह में दश्त या जबल हो।

आजा तू रू-ब-रू, होने दे पलकें भारी,

पर पलकें झपकने ना पायें, कि दीदार बे-ख़लल हो।।

दश्त = जंगल, forest
जबल = पहाड़, mountain
रू-ब-रू = आमने-सामने, face to face
बे-ख़लल = बाधा रहित, without any interruption

This is for the times when you are having a tough time in your own head for the distance is testing your patience.

It’s for the craving to affection and annoyance to adorable catching up.

Have faith. It shall be okay.
