Kuchh Acche Palon Ki Ungli Thaame - Happy 2011!

A fresh year is yet another occasion to contemplate and look forward. While doing so. I came up with this. Have a great year ahead!

Kuchh Acche Palon Ki Ungli Thaame

Kucch Acche Palon Ki Ungli Thaame
Hum Mushkil Galiyon Se Nikal Jaate Hain
Zindaki Ke Kai Ghumaavdaar Raaste
Hum Yunhi Tay Kiye Jaate Hain

Kitne Dost Aaye Aur Gaye
Kucch Paas Bhi Reh Gaye
Unke Saath Thoda Hans Bol Kar
Hum Apni Shaamein Saja Lete Hain

Kuch Ghaltiyan Bhi Ki Hain Humne
Aage Bhi Hoti Rahengee, Shaayad
Par Kucch Acche Karmon Ke Sahaare
Unhein Sudhaar Bhi Lenge, Shaayad

Kucch Acche Palon Ki Ungli Thaame
Hum Mushkil Galiyon Se Nikal Jaate Hain
Zindaki Ke Kai Ghumaavdaar Raaste
Hum Yunhi Tay Kiye Jaate Hain

Holding The Finger Of Some Good Moments (a rough translation in English)

Holding the finger of some good moments
I pass through the difficult lanes
That’s how I keep traversing
The long & winding journey of Life

Many friends came and went
Some stayed with me as well
We often talk & laugh together
And our evenings are decorated

I’ve made some mistakes too
Perhaps will make some more
But thanks to some good deeds
I might just rectify ‘em errors

Holding the fingers of good moments
I pass through the difficult lanes
That’s how I keep traversing
The long & winding journey of Life

:) Beautifully captured and rendered..

there is a nice meter in the first two lines. the rest does not work so much.

as a poem it's not a fresh bud, a new flowering, just a smoky recollection of something someone said sometime.

@ Anonymous, thx for the appreciation!

@ Achu, i understand what you mean. but for a somewhat repetitive occasion like New Year (:)), i wanted it to be re-mindful of certain annual feelings in a simple manner.

@ Drifter, :)

i think it is lovely - especially the way you've lightly added 'mistakes' to the 'memories' and 'friends'. it reads like a caution to stay positive and not to be too hard on oneself. fellow, you have the gift of understanding life.
