Neend..

Rona tab aata hai, jab neend na sataye
Rona tab aata hai, jab neend na sataye
Bas aankhein bandh ho jaye,
Kaise? Koi toh bataye....

In ashko ko aadat lagi hai
Na Jaane kabse, tapke bas yuhi
Mere naino mein aag lagi hai
Na Jaane kabse, bhadke, bas yuhi

Yaadein nahi, woh na jaane kya sataye
Jab soch mein doob doobkar
Mann aawara lalchaye
Aur raat bhar bas ek hi baat jagaye
Ki bhaiya koi toh bataye, hume neend kyu nahi aaye?

Hindi

Woh sannatta, woh sadake,
Woh baarish ki boonde
Woh hawa jo halka se has de
Jab mann mein koi shola hai bhadke

Woh sisakti zindagi, lambi si raat
Woh sapno adhure, haathi ke daant
Har zarre ne jab tha haske pukara
Woki puraane din, jab main tha sabka dulara

Khoyi rahi kisi chadar mein,
Chhupa sa, daba sa, purana dard tha
Bas rakh diya mann ki almaari mein
Ruk gaye kisi din, bas, aur mausam sard tha...

Jee rahe hai, zinda hai, alag kya hai?
Saanse ruki nahi, ab tak, alag kya hai?
Ki phir ek subah ho is raat ki, intezaar hai
Kambakht dil bhi maane na, ki ye sab bekaar hai...

Promises

Promises, I tell you, should never be made
For life is but frail, it may quickly fade
Promises, to abide, promises to restore
Promises that promise like nothing before..

Death, be only the best kept promise
Till Death do us part,solemnly said.
How rarely meant. Like a heartfelt kiss
Till it all does end on Death's bed...

What words men use, to rend, to repair
What promises, to bend backwards, words so rare..
Words, these are but words,just wisps in the air
What value we give them, we think they be fair...

Till Death comes calling, riding his steed
Words all but forgotten, all bondage freed
Some promises get away, scot free, some stay behind
Some promises were a certainty, some kept us blind...

Malayalam poem

Malayalam poem
Kochu Kochu nimishangal
Thedi poya naalil nee
Vannathonnum kandilla
Mumpil ninna aalil nee
Kaatil Thedi, veetil Thedi
Odi nadannu, payye nadannu
Kootil Thedi, naatil Thedi
Kannum pooti, chaadi nadannu
Aa nilavil ethu shalabham
Kittumennu prarthanayode
Kaathirunnu vedanayode
Kai ozhinju poya nimisham
Poovil veena manj pole
Venalil kalanju poyi
Kaalam etra vannu poyi
Orayiram premam arinja pole..
Ennittum arinjille priye nee
Inikku neeyum,ninukku njanum
Daivam pande onnu ezhuthi
Nee thediya  aa swarga gaanam..

To my Daughter...



Scratches and kicks, and kisses and licks,


And love galore, in those adoring eyes


Some daily new words, that always suffice


To tell me you love me, My sweet little baby


"Papa!", that call, that one little word


That seals our bond, such emotions stirred


Your daily embrace, demanding naught from me


But some love, only love, 'tis not hard to see


Kid, I wish I can be, your superman,your ideal,


And I wish you but understand, the way I now feel;


When the years pass us by, of my weary bones in the breeze


Are all that remain, with wet eyes and memories....

Chains of the Mind

Some see evil on this earth
Some just pain and misery see
Some, the Devil's laughing girth
And some just want to be set free...

Oh, but yonder lies that lea of green
Just past that river, boiling broth
Of all our fears, a fetid screen
To cross which must move them beyond sloth...

Come summer's rain, nor spring's burst
Of life, nor the rains can slake that thirst
Nor winter's white, nor the colors of fall
Can free some minds from being thrall...

What tyranny is this, the flesh demands,
To be touched by God's hand, his true commands
But the mind desists, the mind refrains
It loves too much it's binding chains...
