Untold words.

Picture credit: Internet

“नहीं लिखी मैंने”

जो बात पढ़ी जानी थी वो बात नहीं लिखी मैंने,
दरिया से जो टकराये वो बरसात नहीं लिखी मैंने,

अश्क़ों में जो बह जाए वो जज़्बात नहीं लिखी मैंने,
रात भर जो ख़्वाब न लाये वो रात नहीं लिखी मैंने,

हाँ लिखना कुछ और ही था वह राज़ नहीं लिखी मैंने,
बिन तिरे जो गुज़ार’नी हो वो साथ नहीं लिखी मैंने,

वक़्त बेवक़्त तेरी याद लाये वो हालात नहीं लिखी मैंने,
जो लबों पर बिन सुने ही आये वो नग्मात नहीं लिखी मैंने।

Translated:

I did not write the word what was to be read,
I did not write the rain that would hit the rivage.

I did not write the emotion that would flow in the tears,
I did not write the night that don’t bring the dream throughout the night.

Yes, I wanted to write something else, I did not write that secret,
I did not write the meeting in which you are not with me.

I did not write the situation that remind me about you anytime, anywhere,
I did not write the lyrics that came without listening to the words.
