Kahin door jab din dhal jaaye . . .

~ Gulzar

 

"Sometimes, somewhere, far far away . . .

When the day has breathed its last

The coy bride of the night

Hiding its bare body . . .

. . . in the veil of darkness

Steps in ever so softly and silently.

And then

In the dark and dreary courtyard of my thoughts

Someone lights a lamp of dreams . . . yet unfulfilled . . .

 

Sometimes, when. . .

for no rhyme or reason

The breathing became heavier . . .

When, suddenly . . .

for no rhyme or reason

the eyes brimmed over . . .

Then playfully . . . but lovingly . . .

walking up to me

someone touches me softly . . .

but I just can't see her . . .

 

Sometimes, somewhere, far far away . . .

When the day has breathed its last . . .

 

(Translated from the original in Hindi by Gulzar)
