मेरे जैसे – Like Me

by vpundir | April 25th, 2007

भले बुरे सबसे यारी, सबकी व्यथा समझते हो
मदिरालय, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

न छीना सत्य ने भोलापन, चन्द खिलौना छूते हो
बालक, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

जाग कर रात भर तुम, जलते बुझते रहते हो
आकाशदीप, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

नए पुराने धागों से, एक ताना बुनते रहते हो
तन्तुवी, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

कुछ कुछ ह्रदय समाये, कुछ कुछ रिसते रहते हो
घट, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

कहते तो हो सत्य सदा पर, सब कुछ सुनते रहते हो
दर्पन, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

कुछ कुछ पहचाने से, और कुछ अनजाने लगते हो
अजनबी, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

फूलों की सुगंध हो तो, कांटो की चुभन भी देते हो
उपवन, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

रुकते बसते नहीं कहीँ पर, निरंतर चलते रहते हो
समय, तुम भी कुछ कुछ मेरे जैसे लगते हो

Bhale bure sabase yaarii, sabakii vyathaa samajhate ho
Madiraalay, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Na chhiinaa saty ne bholaapan, chand khilounaa chhoote ho
Baalak, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Jaag kar raat bhar tum, jalate bujhate rahate ho
Aakaashadiip, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Naye puraane dhaagon se, yek taanaa bunate rahate ho
Tantuvii, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Kuchh kuchh hraday samaaye, kuchh kuchh risate rahate ho
Ghat, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Kahate to ho saty sadaa par, sab kuchh sunate rahate ho
Darpan, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Kuchh kuchh pahachaane se, aur kuchh anajaane lagate ho
Ajanabii, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Phoolon kii sugandh ho to, kaanto kii chubhan bhii dete ho
Upavan, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Rukate basate nahiin kahiin par, nirantar chalate rahate ho
Samay, tum bhii kuchh kuchh mere jaise lagate ho

Good, bad, you befreind all
Understanding everyone’s agony
Jolly taphouse, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

Your spirit survives harsh truth
You reach for the stars twinkly
Dear child, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You stay awake all through night
Burn, extinguish, flickeringly
Sky lamp, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You take threads old and new
And keep weaving tirelessly
O weaver, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You keep it all in your heart
And yet a little oozes free
Earthen pot, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

Although you always tell the truth
You silently listen to all repartee
Mirror, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You seem to have a familiar face
But are as unknown as can be
Stranger, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You’re the fragrance of a flower fresh
And also the sting of its thorny tree
Garden, you really seem to be
Just a little like me

You don’t ever stop or settle down
For anything or anybody
Time, you really seem to be
Just a little like me
