Do Not Desire Me So Much - Poem by Ravi Kopra

I know you desire me
But don't desire me so much
That I get heart broken someday

I know you think
Love is God for you
But do not make me as your God today

You lure me by telling you love me
Whatever you say brings smiles to me
It isn't necessary that you include me in everything you do
It too isn't necessary that you include me in your future plans

Don't take it granted that we will be together always
By being close to each other for few days
We may not always stand for each other
It is better to be on our own now
Better that our shortcoming be our own too
So that your sorrows won't get me down when
We aren't together someday.

This is a translation of the poem Itna Na Chaho.. by DEEPTI MISHRA
