कब तक / How Long

बहुत दिन हो गए
ख्वाब में तुम्हें देखे हुए,
थोड़ी सी नींद उधार दे दो
कब तक रहूंगा मैं जागते हुए?


It’s been a long time
since I saw you in my dream
lend me some sleep,
how long will I stay awake?

–Kaushal Kishore



  1. Dreaming about the squirrel, Kaushal? Perhaps, you have to leave for her some nuts. If it isn’t a squirrel you are referring to, then perhaps a small gift in exchange for lending your some sleep
    like a flower will do…

    1. Incidentally, a squirrel has also a heart, but you know what I meant. Hopefully, as suggested by you, a flower will be more than the interest for lending sleep. Thank you, Joanna for this lovely comment.
