Flowers Of The Dust - In Memory of Friends Departed

Popularity 2Viewed 4698 times 2018-5-28 07:11 |System category:News

In memory of all friends who have departed this world.

Phir khiloge Phir miloge
(Dhool Ke Phool)

******************
Thum dharthi ke dhool ho,
Kise ke pyaar ke phool ho,

Khushi diya hai thumne hume khilkar
Yaaden diye thumne humse milkar

Aaye the kuch pal behakaane
Chaman-e-zindagi-ko mehakaane

Phoolon ka tho maqsad hi hai murjhana khilkar
Aur ek din reh jaana phir dhool se milkar

Par tere baad bhi wo mehak rahegi
Aur kisi ki tho awaaz ye kahegi

Kabhi na kabhi, Kahin na kahin
Phir ek baar thum khiloge
Phir ek din thum miloge



ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

You will bloom again, We will meet again
(Flowers of the Dust)
**********************

You are the dust of the earth
You are flower of someone's love

You gave us joy by blooming
You gave us memories by meeting us

You came to distract us for a few moments
To make the garden of life fragrant

The aim in life of flowers is to wilt after blooming
And one day to become part of the dust

But the fragrance will remain after you are gone
And at least some voice will say

"Sometime, Somewhere
You will bloom again
We will meet again"

if you are singer, will you sing it out? do you write this in celebration of the coming Dragon Boat Festival, which is set to remember a poet who dived into a river for his lost love by his gay king.

I suppose my poem will remind each reader of their own friends and their memories. Thanks for sharing yours, even if in an indirect way. Sorry to hear about your loss.

Hold on, friends

Where are you or
How are you recently?...

You are the dust of the earth
You are flower of someone's love
You gave us joy by blooming

Before and after we "..."
Sure, truce(truth).

Snowipine, my friend!
I am alright and doing well. This is a poem I wrote a few years ago when a good friend of mine passed away. I suppose most of us will experience such in life. The poem rhymes well in Hindi/Urdu, the translation in English does not.. I hope all is well with you my friend. Warm regards.
