जन्मदिन की आशाएं : Birthday Wishes

जन्मदिन के दिन खुद को क्या उपहार दूँ ,
सारा दिन क्या मैं इस सोच में गुज़ार दूँ ।

हर साल इस दिन क़ुछ नया होने की चाह ,
कि मन खुश हो जाये और मुंह से निकले वाह !

पर तोहफ़े और बधाईयों से है आज झोली भरी ,
कि सारी आशाएं हो गई एकसाथ पूरी ।

हर दिन ऐसी ही खुशियों के पल बरसे ,
कि मन में चाह फिर कभी न तरसे ।

भगवान से बस यही एक प्राथना है,
कि अपने प्रियजनों के संग सदा रहना है ।

फिर सोचु क्यूँना आज में इतनी खुशियां बाटूँ ,
कि सबके मन में अपने लिए अपार मोह भर दूँ ।

जीवन में अगर इस दिन कोई मुझे याद करे ,
तो पहले उसके होटो पे एक प्यारी सी मुस्कान खिले ॥

English Translation of the poem

What can I gift myself on my birthday,
Shall I spend whole day in this thought.

Every year I want something novice to occur,
That my heart is content and I say yes in satisfaction.

But presents and blessings have fullfilled my wish-list
all my wishes have come true.

I wish every day I get shower of happiness
that I don't feel empty anymore.

I wish only one thing to God
that I want to live with my loved ones.

After a while I ponder why not I spread happiness today
and fill each one heart with love and happiness.

If someone remembers me today
I wish first they smile heartily and remember me.
