And When I Saw You

Hey friends here another Hindi poem for your kind read. I am including the English translation for your kind read

जिस चहरे को कई उम्र तक
एक साया बनाकर आपने जो
दर्पण से छुपा रखा था

हम दुनिया से परे
ज़हन पे न जाने कितने प्रतिबिम्ब के रेखायें खींच
कल्पनाओं के झील में दुबे रहे

और आज जब हम
आपसे अकस्मात् रूबरू हुए
मेरे ख़यालों को जसे
कोई सितारा मुकम्मल हुआ

For ages I knew you
through your words
and you hid behind
many illusionist seance

And aloof from the world
I drew many images
in my thoughts
often dwelling
in the oceans of your mirage

And today
when I saw you at last
I feel as if
my yearning had found
some new meaning and purpose
for me to remain with you
forever in love

  1. Waah….waah….kyaa baat…..👌👌

    धड़कने रुक गई,
    सांसे थम गई,
    वर्षों बाद वो रूप नजर आया,
    जिसे देख
    आंखें मटकना भूल गई।
