अनोखी चाह : Strange Wish

चाहा था आपके पास बैठूँ , 
कुछ कहुँ और कुछ आपसे सुनु ,
बैठूँ गोद में आपके हर बार, 
जब पडे माँ से मीठी मार | 
आपकी मुस्कान मुझे दिलासा देती,
फिर गलती न दोहराने का एहसास दिलाती | 

चाहा था देखूँ उन्हें पास से, 
जिसने संवारा परिवार प्यार से, 
सुनु आपकी बातें आपके मुख से,
माँ पापा की शैतानियों और किस्से | 
देखूँ वह सुन्हेरा धागा प्यार का 
जिसे सिर्फ मेहसुस किया जा सका | 

चाहा था चलु आपके साथ ,
बगीचे में थाम के आपका हाँथ,
उठाते आप मुझे पुचकारते हुए लाड से,
अगर गिर जाती मैं अचानक से,
चुप कराने को खिलाते मुझे मीठी टॉफ़ी ,
बस वही होता मेरे लिए काफ़ी | 

पर यह सब हो ना सका कभी ,
मैं आपसे मिल ना सकी कभी,
जानती हूँ आपका आशीर्वाद बना है सदा ,
पर क्या इस नियति को दे हम दगा | 
लौट आईएं एक दिन के लिए ,
समेट लूंगी मैं बचपन सदा के लिए | 

चाह बड़ी अनोखी है मेरी ,
समझ जाओ भगवन तो करना पूरी ,
इस जीवन मैं एक दिन ऐसा देना,
की बन जाऊ अपने दादा-नाना का खिलौना| 
खेलूं कूदूँ मैं उनके संग ख़ुशी ख़ुशी ,
सच नहीं तो सवप्नलोक में करना आशा पूरी |

This poem is dedicated to my grandfathers, and I wish I could spend a day with them.
Sharing with Indiblogger where this week's Indispire prompt is #DefeatDeathForADay

English Translation

I wish I could sit beside you,
listen and say somethings to you,
sit in your lap for safety
when mother runs behind me for the blunders I  have done
your assurance smile make me happy
which assures me not to make mistakes again.

I wish I could see you smile
the one who knitted loving family
I wish I could hear your stories from you
wished to hear childhood stories of my parents
wished to see the golden thread of love moments
which I only felt in these years.

I wish to walk beside you,
leisure walk in park holding your hand
you would hold me upright if I fall
cuddling me with all love and care
to bring a smile you would give a chocolate
yes that would have been enough to me.

But all these things were not possible
as I never met you in person
I know your blessings are with me always
but let's cheat destiny for a day
comeback for a day defeating death
so that I could gather all my childhood memories for once.

My wish is very strange
fulfill it God, if you can understand,
in my lifetime just give a day
so that I can play with my grandfathers
I wish to play jump and have fun,
if not in real then atleast fulfill the wish in dreams.


  1. What's up to every body, it's my first visit of this blog;
    this website consists of remarkable and genuinely
    excellent material designed for readers.

  2. Grandparents offer immense love which we always relish n cherish too. Bahut khoob likha hai aapne

    1. Yes they do outpour their love to fullest, but sometimes we don't get enough of it.

  3. I loved it guys. I lost my grandfather very early and my grandmother 2 years back. So, I can totally relate to the happiness and the lose one feels for them. Grandparents are a blessing for children, those who have are lucky. :) you brought back many memories, made me a lil emotional too. Thanks a ton.
