goodbye


vidaa

jab tum vidaa lo
to mud jaayaa karo jaldi se
aaur chadh jaayaa karo
apni us bus,
yaa metro rail mein
jo tumhein le jaati hai mujhse dur

ya,
chali jaayaa karo bin bataaye mujhe
kyonki jaate huye tumhe
dekhaa nahi jaataa mujhse
i haven't attempted translating it. i'll try, but could somebody help me with it. please.

Lovely words Adi. I understand the feeling :-)
I am not sure I can translate that is just right with your mood, but here it is anyway ...

When you depart (from me),
Turn away quickly
and board your bus
or the metro train
That takes you away from me.
Or,
Leave without saying a goodbye
Because I cannot bear
to see you go away.

Simply beautiful. Love it. Like I heard somewhere Goodbye is such a wrongly termed word, it should be Badbye :). I hate goodbyes myself, do anything to avoid them.
Oh and you're forgiven for not coming to my blog, you apparently have a lot of things on your mind :P
