Ocean within

There’s an ocean within
So deep I can’t tell
Rivers dancing together
Don’t know its heaven or hell

Every breeze is frozen
Cold waves sing no songs
A dumb struck silence
Seems time has stopped
There’s no ticking sound
no ringing bell
There’s an ocean within
So deep I can’t tell...

The blue-gray lines
From the horizon O’ dear
Keeps calling from beyond
but still I am here...
no song no joy
no breeze no smell
there’s an ocean within
so deep I can’t tell

A wretched ship sinks
leaving all sailors dead
caption’s promise stands broken
sad albatross said:
there’s an ocean all around
so deep I can’t tell
rivers dancing together
don’t know it’s heaven or hell

चल दोबारा ज़िन्दगी से प्यार कर

तू किसी शोख़ का सिंगार कर रख भी दे ये ख़ामोशी उतार कर तीरगी ये पल में टूट जायेगी  चल दोबारा ज़िन्दगी से प्यार कर एक ही नहीं कई शिकायतें ...
