M arvel yourself at the wonder that you are,

Y ou wish for something that’s near yet so far,

S eldom you admit the endowment within you,

T rue to yourself now begin your entity anew,

E very distress you forget that’s ever been in life,

R emember never within you there ever was strife,

Y ou shall realize the truth that lies in your mystery…


You are the hand that holds and guides me,
You are my bonding and yet you set me free,

You are my comfort, my tears you wipe,
You are who makes me feel one of a type,

You are my world, you are my joy,
You are that love, with who each moment I enjoy,

You are the reason I feel life is worthwhile,
You wish for it, but don’t know, you are my smile…



Tere bin….


Dard uthta hai dil mein wahi jana pehchaana,

Jeena dushwaar hai, lagta mushkil hai mar bhi jaana,

Tere gham me kathte hai ye pal, par tujhe kya bolna?

Kya karu, tere bin nahin lagta dil mera dholna….


Mohabbat kiya hai nahin kiya hai koi gunaah,

Tere dard me hi khud ko kar denge hum fanaah,

Dil toh de diya ab jaan ki keemat kya tolna?

Kya karu, tere bin nahin lagta dil mera dholna….


Wafaah hai kya ye jaane tu ya jaane na,

Zindagi hai tere bharose, maane tu ya maane na,

Izhaar karte kaash par raaz tujhe nahin hai kholna,

Kya karu, tere bin nahin lagta dil mera dholna….



You ask me what it is that I love you for,

I ponder over the thought but cannot find a clue,

You say that you are no dazzling star,

And many a times your façade is merely untrue…


But there is something, to which oblivious you’re,

Love doesn’t need reasons, facts or logic too,

I love you, not because of who you are,

But because of who I am when I am with you….



Doubts arise in mind as to who I am really,

Why do I live my life to please the rest merely?

I will stand up today and prove that I am just me,

No one can choose for me what is my destiny..

Spent too many a day in a mirage of pleasure,

Understood this folly of mine, is quite beyond measure..

As they say rightly, it’s better late than never,

I will pull the reigns of my true self back together..

I do not need another to tell me my identity,

Right now, my imprisoned soul I will set free…

In my eyes the image of the real me, I shall see,

I promise myself, I will now be what I want to be…


Teri yaadein….

Yaad teri aisi hai jo dil se jaati nahin,

Pyar mera aisa hai ke chain humhe aata nahin,

Door rehte ho kyon humse,

Ye ahsaas ab dil ko bhaata nahin…

Hum tere hi khayalon me khoye hai,

Teri yaadon me jiya karte hai,

Kareeb nahin ho humhare tum,

Issi sach ka zehar hum piya karte hai…

Nazron ke saamne hokar bhi nazar churaate ho tum,

Dil ke kareeb hokar bhi dil ko jalaate ho tum,

Tumhari ek jhalak, ek awaaz ke liye taras jaate hai hum,

Aakhir kasoor kya hai humhara ke aise sataate ho tum?


Kyon ye sazaa de rahe ho humein mohabbat mein?

Kami kya reh gayi hai aakhir humhari chahat mein?

Dil toh sabhi dete hai par jaan lutaata nahin koi,

Humhari har saans guzarti hai bas teri ibaadat mein…



Today I smiled a little bit, my problems didn’t look so bad,

Today I shared my thoughts with else, a bit of hope I had,

Today I sang a little song, and felt my heart grow more light,

And walked a happy little mile, and saw not a cloud in sight….


Today I was content with what I had and longed for nothing more,

And what had seemed like only weeds felt like flowers at my door,

Today I loved a little more and complained a little less,

And in giving myself this joy, I forgot my weariness….
