Manzil.........(Destination) - Poem by Kavya ...

Tum saath the
Toh manzil bhi paas tha,
Lehron se bhare samandar mein
Kinara nazar aa raha tha,
Har mushkil aasan lagta
Mere haath mein jab tumhara haath hota,
Tumhare saath guzre hue pal
Har waqt kam lagta,
Saath janam tak saath nibhane ka
Wada roz yeh dil karta!

Ek din waqt ne humse ek khel khela
Hamara pyar shayad usse bhi na bardash hua,
Tumne toh saath rehne ka wada tha kiya,
Fir woh wada bhala kyu toad diya,
Ab yeh pal jaise tham sa gaya hain,
Jeete jee yeh jaan mar sa gaya hain,
Aaj hamari zindagi ki naav doob rahi hain,
Samandar ke lehron k beech kinara kahi nazar mein nahi hain,
Hamari manzil toh tum ho
Bhala kaise hum tumse dur ho
Inhe lehron ke sang hum kheeche ja rahe hain tumhare paas,
Agle janam ka saath nibhane lo khud he ruk gayi meri saans!

Translation (English)

When we were together
My destination appeared close,
In the sea filled with waves
The shore appeared close,
Every obstacle seemed fine
When I held your hand in mine,
Every moment spent with you
Always seemed to be few,
To be together for next seven reincarnations
Our hearts would sing merrily in anticipation.

One day destiny played a cruel game
Our true love may be it had to blame,
You had promised me your company
What then made you leave me midway, Oh my genie,
Now the time has stood still
Am dead though alive left with no thrill,
My life's boat is sinking
Amidst the sea waves the shore is nowhere to be seen,
You are my destination
Then how can I be away from you in such a situation,
Am being pulled by these waves drawing closer to you,
My heartbeat has also come to a halt to start our next life anew!

    I cannot follow the Hindi version as I have studied hardly any Hindi. But the translation, I enjoyed much. Even in the face of adversities, problems appeared surmountable with a strong hand to assist! But when you lost that grip, dreams and hopes shifted out of focus. Still you are not totally disheartened... there is hope of both of you getting united in another life! (Report) Reply
