Khwabon mein

NS Rajan

Yadein mitaana, bebasi chupaana

Hai bahut aasaan tujhe bhool jaana

Iltazaa ab itni si kartaa hoon zaalim

Har raat khwaabon mein tashreef na laana  

                                                                                                                                                                             

यादें मिटाना  बेबसी छुपाना

है  बहुत आसान  तुझे  भूल  जाना

इल्तजा  अब  इतनी  सी  करता  हूँ  ज़ालिम

हर  रात  ख़्वाबों  में  तशरीफ़  न  लाना

Erasing memories, hiding helplessness, even forgetting you is so easy.

All I pray to you, my dear, is that you must stop visiting me in my dreams.

(Only a dream away: The picture above is of the lovely work of art by Raymond Leech, a self-taught artist born at Great Yarmouth in East Angila in 1949, said to have been inspired by the French impressionists, Degas, Renoir and Toulouse Lautrec.)
