Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

kaghaz_kishtiکاغز کی کشتی تھی
جو ھم نے مل کر بنائی تھی
اسے پانی میں چلتا دیکھ کر
کیسے خوش ھوجاتے تھے
بہت سے خواب تھے
جو ھم نے مل کر سجائے تھے
جاگتی انکھوں سے۔۔
جنھیں پورا کرنے کی
تم نے قسم کھائی تھی
بیت سے راز تھے میرے
جو بطور امانت
تمھارے پاس رکھوائے تھے
ایسے راز
جنکی بھنک دنیا میں
کسی دوسرے کو نھیں۔
پھر کیوں؟

  3. Reminds me of ‘Wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka paani’ by jagjit singh.
    Lovely Maria…..Memories and “What if’s” ! And questions…. They kill us.

    • I second this…It reminded me as well of Kaghaz ki Kashti!

      January 14, 2014 at 11:41 pm

      • Well I agree with ladies, Kagaz ki Kashti is kinda obvious hook.
        But in essence I found it more inclining towards Gulzar saheb’s “Mera Kuch Samaan” from great Indian parallel cinema film: “Ijaazat”.🙂
        The way you’re recalling the past, way you’re referencing the images of moments by-gone, and way there’s an underlying state a grievance and you ask a question. Similarities are stark.
        If this is a coincidence, it’s nothing less than a magic. If it’s not, then it’s nothing less than a wonderful tribute.🙂

  6. Phir kyun?
    Phir kyun wo naav aakhir doob gaye?
    Phir kyun wo dariyah sookh gayaa?
    Phir kyun wo sapne toot gaye?
    Phir kyun wo raaz aakhir khul gaya?

    Chale to the do naav saath us chhor se
    Phir kyun manjhdhaar mein ek naav chhot gaya?


    chhor = kinaaraa
    manjhdhaar = opposite of kinaraa; nadi ke beech mein

    Yahi poochh rahin thin na aap?😛
    Translate kar detin… jaldi samajh jaata🙂

    January 16, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    • Aah. Awesome. (Y)

      “Phir kyun wo naav aakhir doob gaye?
      Phir kyun wo raaz aakhir khul gaya?
      Chale to the do naav saath us chhor se
      Phir kyun manjhdhaar mein ek naav chhot gaya”

      Manjhdaar I know, shukrya for the addition. Question waheen reh gya.😉

      January 16, 2014 at 6:46 pm

      • Question mujhse poochha tha kya?
