Hamne Dekhi Hain.. (Translation Of A Song Composed By Gulzar) - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

I have felt the floating aroma of those fragrant eyes
Do not accuse it of a relationship with your touch
It is just an emotion; gauge it with your soul
Let love remain love, spare it the burden of a name…

Love is not a word, love is not a voice
It is a silence that is heard and spoken of
Neither is it extinguished nor does it cease to flow
A drop of luminosity that runs through the ages…

I can see the hint of a smile playing somewhere in those eyes
And Sunshine bending over those eyelids
The lips do not utter a word, yet on those quivering lips
Myriad stories wait behind a wall of silence…
