A BIT OF LOSS AND MORE GAIN

a poem by Owais Ahmad, India - poetry writer, author, poet

*****ENGLISH*****

There's just a bit of regret that we broke up,
Otherwise, there’s merriment of getting rid of an insane;
There’s just a bit of twinge in the heart that fate betrayed,
Otherwise, it’s more the opportunity to try the luck again;

There’s just a bit of lament of not seeing you smile,
Otherwise, it’s a pity price to save mine;
There're a few blurred memories of your embrace,
Otherwise, there is the serenity—forgetting the claptraps of thine;

There’s just a bit of loneliness when I toss and turn in bed,
Otherwise, the joy of being undisturbed is sublime;
There’s just a bit of ache which is pouring in ink,
Otherwise, it’s the effect of this silly wine.

*****HINDI TRANSLATION*****

Zara sa afsos hai tumse nata toot jane ka,
Baaki to jashn hai tujhse pichha chhoot jane ka.
Zara si khalish hai ke kismat bewafa ho gayi,
Baaki to mauka hi hai kismat ko phir se aazmane ka.
Zara si udaasi hai ke teri muskurahat phir se na dekh paunga,
Baaki itna harjana to banta hai apni muskurahat bachane ka.
Zara si dhundhli si yaaden aati hai teri bahon ke ghero ki,
Baaki to dil ko sukun hi aata hai tujhe bhool jane ka.
Zara sa akelapan mahsus hota hai karwate badalne me,
Baaki to alag hi maza hai befikra so jane ka.
Zara sa dil ka dard hai jo bayaan ho rha hai alfazo me,
Baaki to asar hai kambakht in paimaano ka.
