The Long Goodbye

अलविदा
 

उम्र गुज़र गई

पर तुमसे अलविदा न कर सके 

किसी और वक्त की यादोंसे

तुमको जुदा न कर सके.

 

किसीकी आँखोंने अल्हड़पनमें

इस दिल को था तराशा 

ज़ख्में दर्द दे गए ज़िन्दगी भर का

जो घाव था जरासा.

~ ~

It *roughly* translates to this:

 

The long goodbye

 

A lifetime has past

yet, am unable to bid (you) goodbye

The memory of another time and you

remain inseparable.

 

Naive adolescence eyes
searched through this heart once

Leaving a hurt to last a lifetime,

from a wound, so slight.
