सुफीया अंजली

 

लो आओ आज मीलावुं तुमको,नन्ही बेटी सुफीयासे

अभी   अभी  वो आई है,  खुद  ईश्वर  अल्लाके   घरसे—

ईसिलीये वो  सोती  रहेती,   सारे    दिन  और   रातोमे

शायद   सूनती    रहेती  हैं,  खोई   परीयोंकी     बातोमे—

क्या देखे वो क्या सोचे है,  कैसे हम क्युं कर जाने

सपने देखे वो हंसती हो,  क्या अपने  क्या अनजाने—

टकटकती  वो   देखे  मांको,  मधुर  मधुर जो मुस्काये

नरम नरम हाथोसे पकडे, सब ऊलजन मां सुलजाये—

भैया   शानसे  चढकर बैठा,    है   पापाकी       गोदीमे     

देखो   क्या तुफान   उठे,    जब  ये भी  बैठे गोदीमे—

जब जी चाहे  सोये  जागे,  दुध  पीये  या    तो   रोये

जो मन चाहे खेल रचाये, सबके  दिलको    बहेलाये—

 “संगीता-मृदुलकी बेटी, केतनकी बहेन, हमारी पोती”

Sufiya Anjali

Let me introduce you to our sweet little Sufiya

Who has just arrived from the house of Ishwar-Allah

The reason she has been sleeping Day and night

May be that she is listening to the unfinished stories of the Angels

What is she observing  or hearing, how can we know?

Thinking of her dreams, she maybe smiling, to us it is  unknown

She stares at her mother, who is sweetly smiling at her

Who holds her with gentle hands and resolves all the problems

Look at her brother who is sitting so smugly in the Papa’s lap

let’s see what storm arises when she also sits in his lap

Whenever she feels like it, she sleeps, wakes up, drinks milk or cries

Whatever she chooses to do, it  pleases our hearts

—- Sangita-Mridul’s daughter, Kethan’s sister and our granddaughter—-
