Snigdha- the peaceful compenion

Tare ami shudhai barebar,
Kotha hote asho tumi? kothay Tomar ghor?
Niruttore opolok thako tumi cheye,
Smitohasse probesh koro, hridoy majhare.

Suprobhat e bhorai tomar, snigdho kore mon,
Patar fnake robir kiron, kore anuranan,
Madhukar shonay aji bhromor gunjoron,
Swetkorobi gnatha malay tobo alonkoron.

Swetbosona chondro aji dholiche fule fule,
Rikto hoste prarthana roto, sikto elochule,
Modhur dhwoni gunjorilo praner antorale,
Peet bostre archanile prosad dile tule.

The Last Oath

The bragging rights are about to reach,
the lanterns light is flickering from last few moments,
the easy chair is saying, happens, take it easy,
the sun is about to set.

The door clamps are saying, “Come again”,
the great lantern is still giving its hope,
the rose garden left only with thorns,
its time, to share the divine chime.

Dear after a long, I can feel you are here,
or else whom should I share,
we have traveled a long together,
happy to join you with fire and breeze.

Show me the way where to go,
show me the way to find peace,
take me to the era, where sun sets,
want to be the light for every hope.

Wish of life

When morning sky spreads eternal bliss,
When the Sun does its holy kiss,
When a baby cries for mothers touch,
Ooo mom take me to your lap.

When darkest sky spreads eternal peace,
When the Moon fills with joy of love,
When a mother charish her first motherhood,
Ooo mother take me in your arms.

When the sky falls with lighting and rain,
When the life fills with losses and gain,
When l feel no pain while death,
Ooo mom let me rest in your lap.

Hum aur hamare apne

Samay ke saath guftagu karte karte
Zindegi se peyar hone lage,
Zindegi me chalte chalte,
Nazar ki ghunghat uthne lage.

Ghunghat jo uthi, laga ki…
Ghunghat jo uthi, laga ki…
zindegi ne aaina de diya,
Tawayef ke kothe me, aabru la diya.

Lukachupi chalte rahe,
guftagu hoti rahi,
Sharab ki nashe me dhut,
parwana nazrana banne lagi.

Shabab ki agosh me pata hi nahi chala,
Samay ne kab zindegi saja diya,
Agamee humko udaan me suraj la diya,
Agamani sarah sansaar me chandni kar diye.

Pawan pravati aaj shiuli se dearti saja diye,
Mann ke aasmaan ko panchi se bhar diye,
Sheeshmahal ko rango se rang diye,
Mere dil ki lali se tere maang saja diye.

Mere Allah

Ankho ki palke nam ho jati hay,
bari si dagar suni si lagne lagti hay,
sagar ki lahere kam par jati hay,
ya allah, sirf teri yaad ati hay.

Ma ki kokh me bari shanti milti hay,
baba ki peyar sab taklif duur kar deti hay,
behen ki sangat sab gam bhulati hay,
ya allah, teri bahath yaad ati hay.

Dosto ne to zindegi saja diya hay,
dosti ne har mushkil asaan kar diya hay,
ya allah tune har mannat puri ki hay,
mere mawla, teri bahath yaad ati hay.
