Udhari var chya prema lar arthach kay?

A serenade on a midsummer night
I was not the singer nor the singee
But I was just the look out
To make sure no one else came.

A glance stolen but never returned.
A question asked but never answered.
A thousand conversations all in my head.

Borrowed love on borrowed time.
Teri pan he mana la kon sangnar?

Messages back and forth
All passed through me
I was the guy’s best friend
And the girl’s first cousin.

Ji kavita amcha sathi lihleli nahi
ter ma tyache point ach kay?

I was just a messenger
But you never noticed me
M’lady was happy and
That made me ecstatic.

But this I promise in
Another birth, another lifetime
I will move heaven and earth
To make you mine.

To give credit/discredit where it is due - the first line was made up by Nikhil in a correspondence and the idea of mixing up two languages was Raamesh's. ]

Voice Within said...

actually now i can...its very nice.

samudrika said...

it is your idea too so you can take some credit.

translation? actually it is pretty bad marathi. but will try.
first line: what is the point of borrowed love?
second line: who will explain this to my heart?
third line: If a poem is not written for me then what is its purpose?

thank you!

how come this sudden understanding? :o
someone you met? ;)

kray said...

Another one bites the dust.
Another distraught heart.
How many more will hurt
until we learn that-
that which meets, must part!

samudrika said...

will remember that the next time I write something. cool!
