thoughts and songs

this is for the words you say, 
the way you exhale and inhale 
and the slowness of the hushed whispers 
that mark the beginnings and the ends 
of your recited poetry

this is the silences and the stillness of kohl lined eyes 
that read through what I write 
this is for then, when the language is just a bridge 
ending around the rivers of closeness

this is for your nights and all her friends, 
the coffees and the inks, 
the Kafka's, the Sahir's and the Beatles 
this is to you with open arms and a song

'chalo ik baar phir se, ajnabee ban jaye 
hum dono'
