Recalling the past with our long lost memories

Long lost memories can be happy, sad bitter-sweet and evoke so many other memories. But the memories always remain in some corner of our heart.

April 11, 2021: Often when we are alone, the long lost memories and the golden moments of our past cross our minds and we get lost reminiscing them. The memories that we do not want to forget and the memories which cross our mind consciously or otherwise.

Those long lost memories can be happy, sad bitter-sweet and so many other things. But the memories always remain in some corner of our heart.

Long lost memories: Reminiscing the past

Today, when I sat all alone for one moment,

The time brought back some forgotten memories.

Some memories and some moments filled with love,

Brought back the fragrance of the rose that got lost between the pages of some book.

Sitting there, I got lost in those old rusty lanes,

Where once my generation thrived.

Then suddenly a gust of wind passed me,

And it brought the essence along.

And then I remembered getting lost in your eyes,

Waiting for you to come after, I threw a tantrum,

And weaving dreams together.

A lightning bolt struck far and I was back to reality,

In the loneliness, in the solitude.

अक्सर जब आप अकेले होते है तो अतीत की सुनहरी यादों में खो जाते हैं। वो यादें जिसे आप कभी भूलना नहीं चाहते…और जाने अनजाने यादें तो आ ही जाती है।

आज जब थोड़ी देर अकेली बैठी,

तो वक़्त ले आया कुछ भूली बिसरी यादों को।

कुछ यादों को तो कुछ प्यार भरे लम्हों को,

ले आया वापस महक उस गुलाब की जो बरसों से किसी किताब में खोया प़डा हैं।

बैठे बैठे खो गई में तो उन गालियों में,

जहां कभी गुजरा हमारा ज़माना था।

फिर अचानक आया हवा का झोंका,

तो ले आया अपने साथ तुम्हारा एहसास।

और फिर याद आ गया,

वो तुम्हरी आँखों में खो जाना,

वो रूठ कर तुम्हारे मनाने का इन्तेज़ार करना,

वो संग बैठ कर सपने संजोना ।

पर  फिर अचानक कड़कड़ाती बिजली ले आयी मुझे

वापस आज में,

वही अकेलेपन में, वही तन्हाई में।
