sakshi / the witness



bohat samay pehle
jab saare kal
aaj hona baaki the
aur samay ne din gin-na
shuru nahi kiya tha
apni ungliyon par
tabhi kahin
hum mil ke bichde the
aur vada kiya tha
samay ko hi sakshi bana
ke milenge phir dobara
phir kisi mod par kahin

attempted translation,

a long time ago
when all the yesterdays
were yet to be today
and time hadn't started
counting days
on his fingers
it was then
that we'd met & separated
and had promised each other
with time himself as the witness
that we'll meet again
on some curve, somewhere
