कुछ बातें (A Few Words)

कल रात भी
लिखीं थी
कुछ बातें
बस तेरे लिए
जो सोचा था
बस तेरे लिए
जब देखे थे
चंद ख़्वाब
जहाँ
हम और तुम
बैठे थे
झील में उतरती हुई
लकड़ी के पुलिए पर
पाँव लटकाए
बातें करते
तमाम दुनिया की
जो परे है
इस दुनिया से
इसकी समझ से
उन शब्दों में
जो बस हम,
और सिर्फ़ हम ही
समझ सकते थे
कुछ बातें हमने कीं
और कुछ
हमारे झूलते पैरों ने
एक दूसरे को छूते हुए

Translation:

‘A few words”

I did write
A few words
Yesternight
Just for you
While I thought
Just about you
When I dreamt
A place
Where we sat
For long hours
With our legs hanging
From the wooden ramp
Leading in to the tranquil lake
Talking about things
Out of this world
Beyond its comprehensions
In words
That you and I,
Just you and I,
Could understand
Those words
That came from us
And from our legs
Touching each other’s
Hanging in to the lake
