Water In The Glass


Taking chances is always a risk and I am, by nature, a person who overthinks. And yet, I have been known to take risks. sometimes, I have failed spectacularly while others have brought success beyond my imagination. Likewise, love is … Continue reading

A Mirror For Me


To thank I friend for being always there for me, I decided to write something for him. I tried and tried,  but nothing made sense. Then one day, all of a sudden, a compulsion to write happened. Grabbing a pen and paper, the old fashioned way, I set about pouring the words that were flowing through me.

The result is what you read below.

Our Friendship Is Perfection

 

Your Hold On Me


Sit in the dark; I still do With tears in my eyes; I think of you In my mind; for day and night You are there; and don’t take flight Those times of our togetherness Are now losing their vividness … Continue reading

The Plan of the Master Weaver


Our lives are but fine weavings
That God and we prepare
Each life becomes a fabric planned
And fashioned in His care

We may not always see just how
The weavings intertwine,
But we must trust the Master’s hand
And follow His design

For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
While we must look from underneath
And trust in Him to guide…

Sometimes a strand of sorrow
is added to His plan,
And though it’s difficult for us,
We still must understand

That it’s He who fills the shuttle,
It’s He Who knows what’s best
So we must weave in patience,
And leave to him the rest…

Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God unveil the canvas
And explain the reasons why

The dark threads are as needed
In the Master’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned


Heard it on Radio some time back and liked it. Thus sharing it!

Nafraton ke mausam main, ulfaton ke mausam main
Dil ne dard paya har mausamon ke mausam main

Nafraton ke mausam main, ulfaton ke mausam main
Dil ne dard paya har mausamon ke mausam main

Ab khushi mili bhi tau hum usay jala dainge
Ab khushi mili bhi tau hum usay jala dainge
Zindagi bita dali jab ghamon ke mausam main

Khamoshi ko odh kar teergi main chal diye
Khamoshi ko odh kar teergi main chal diye
Tanhai hi hasil hai qurbaton ke mausam main

Dil ne bhi uski tarha mujhse bewafai ki
Dil ne bhi uski tarha mujhse bewafai ki
Saath uska hi dia furqaton ke mausam main

Apni jaan pe ban aai uske hausle dekho
Apni jaan pe ban aai uske hausle dekho
Muskura ke jeeta hai dooriyon ke mausam main

Hum ne jab bhi ghabra ke uska naam socha hai
Hum ne jab bhi ghabra ke uska naam socha hai
Phool khilte dekhe hain patharon ke mausam main

Aur apni wafa ka deka hai ek jaisa hi anjaam
Apni wafa ka dekha hai ek jaisa hi anjaam
Doston kimehfil main, dushmanon ke mausam main

Daur-e-badghumani main woh dil ki baat kia sunna
Daur-e-badghumani main woh dil ki baat kia sunna
Shaakh kia hari hoti patjhadon ke mausam main

Par hum na samjhe aaj tak taqaza-e-junoon hai kia
Hum na samjhe aaj tak taqaza-e-junoon hai kia
Raaston ko kho dena manzilon ke mausam main

Raaston main ulfat ke ana ki ik deewar hai
Raaston main ulfat ke ana ki ik deewar hai
Raah koi mili hai kab parbaton ke mausam main

Uski justujoo main tau khud ko hi kho dena tha
Uski justujoo main tau khud ko hi kho dena tha
Hum safar pe nikle thay sanihon ke mausam main

Dil ki is dehleez pe uska muntazir diya
Dil ki is dehleez pe uska muntazir diya
Ab jalayga kab talak aandhiyon ke mausam main

Kirchiyan chunte hue ab haath hain lahu lahu
Kirchiyan chunte hue ab haath hain lahu lahu
Patharon se ki wafa aainon ke mausam main

Aur gham main bheegi aankh ko hairangi se mat dekho
Ke gham main bheegi aankh ko hairangi se mat dekho
Aray barishain tau hoti hain barishon ke mausam main

Aur dil ko cheer jati hai raat chandni hawa
Aur dil ko cheer jati hai raat chandni hawa
Aur teri khamoshiyan sardiyon ke mausam main

Aur kisi mausam main seh bhi jata main magar
Aur kisi mausam main seh bhi jata main magar
Usne dard bheja hai chahaton ke mausam main
