A lover’s doubts. (A bilingual poem)

I don’t know if it is love
Or infatuation.
All I know is that it is
A lovely sensation.

It is like a constant ache
Somewhere deep in my heart.
It’s there when I sleep, it’s there
Before my day does start.

It’s there in waking moments.
It’s there when I’m asleep.
Even in my dreams, truly,
Company does it keep.

I can’t get my eyes off you
Even when you’re away.
Whatever I be doing,
My thoughts to you do sway.

Do you also, my love, these
Feelings reciprocate?
Or is it that I have to,
Alone, bemoan my fate?

३४४१. क्या तुमसे है प्यार मुझे या केवल दिल्लगी

क्या तुमसे है प्यार मुझे या केवल दिल्लगी
ये तो है मालूम नहीं पर तुम हो ज़िंदगी

तुम हो दिल के पास सदा ज्यों दर्द भरी यादें
रात ढले भी संग मेरे, प्रात: भी दस्तक दें

सोते में, जगते में और सपनों के दामन में
रहता है अहसास तुम्हारा ही हर दम मन में

होते हो तुम दूर मगर नज़रों में रहते हो
मुस्कानों में कभी, कभी अश्कों में बहते हो

चाहत की देता हूँ यूँ ही ख़लिश दुहाई मैं?
या दिल तड़पे कभी तुम्हारा भी तनहाई में?
