The heart stopped will begin to wish again, if you show up.
This feverish sky too will turn effervescent, if you show up.
The constant regret of being never up to much in my whole life.
This lingering remorse of mine will too fade, if you show up.
When you’re not beside, everyone lends me – an eye of mercy.
This whole world would start to envy me, if you show up.
These conflicts of world, the feuds social, and chores of work.
All evil and curse would settle by-self, if you show up.
– Dedicated to the hearts colored even in a distance of the beloved.
Tamanna Phir Machal Jaaye Agar Tum Milne Aa Jayo,
Yeh Mausam Hi Badal Jaye Agar Tum Milne Aa Jayo,
Mujhe Gum Hai Ki Meine Zindagi Mein Kuch Nahi Paya,
Yeh Gum Dil Se Nakal Jaye Agar Tum Milne Aa Jayo,
Nahi Milte Ho Mujhse Tum To Sab Humdard Hai Mere,
Zamana Mujhse Jal Jaye Agar Tum Milne Aa Jayo,
Yeh Dunya Bhar Ke Jhagde Ghar Ke Kisse Kam Ke Baate,
Balaa Har Ek Tal Jaye Agar Tum Milne Aa Jayo.
Original lyrics penned by famous poet Javed Akhtar.
The audio rendition above is by non-other than Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh, from his album Soz (Pathos).
Beautiful. Reading this brought up old thoughts of things I already know. Thanks for the reminder. Perfect timing
It’s nostalgic indeed… conjures up memories, untied… conversations unfinished… and thoughts begging for completion… 🙂
