मधुर मुस्कान ( Sweet Smile)



यह मधुर मुस्कान तुम्हारी
  लगे चंद्र ज्योति सी प्यारी
सागर से गहरे है नयन
  मुंख पर एक छवी निराली
उमड़ घूमड़ करते मेघा
  यह मनोहर बयार और बरखा
तो की धीमी सी आहट
  मुझे तुम्हारी याद दिलाती
जलद हवा के घोड़े पर चढ़
  तुम्हारी आगोश में आता
और तुम्हें बाहों में भर
   दूर कहीं ले जाता
यह मनोहर मुस्कान तुम्हारी
  निखरे सूर्य ज्योति सी प्यारी

Translated:
Sweet Smile
This beautiful smile of yours
  Is like a beautiful moonshine
Eyes are deep as an ocean
  The face has a unique glow
The rumbling clouds
  And cool breeze n rain
Slow rustle of the leaves
    Remind me of you
Quickly if I could ride a horse
            To be with you
Take you in my arms
 To take you to a far off place
The lovely smile of yours
 Radiates like a lovely sunshine

PS- This poem was my first brush with writing after engagement and was sent in post to my would be wife(Jyoti).  This is my 100th post and I dedicate it to her for encouraging me to take up writing after all these years. I wish to thank you wonderful readers and writers who have enriched me and made my journey enchanting and made it possible, to score a ton.

Self and my wife a day after our marriage
My wife Jyoti
