Borrowed Love

Borrowed Love

A Poem by Silvia - Scribo, Ergo Sum!



I know

you are not mine

not mine to keep
only borrowed
a song from somebody else´s radio
fleeting happiness snatched from the wind ...

You were
an unexpected gift
a sudden burst of rain in the desert
a rainbow arching through the break of cloud
a blinding smile lighting a sullen face

I know
you are not mine

not mine to hold
not more than I could hold water with bare hands
or catch a cloud
or stop a flock of cranes flies south in the fall

I know
you will drift from me with the wind ...
in a day or in a year

And yet
I feel the loss already
long before really I lost you

Before I stand
helpless tears
desperate longing
a child that has watched her kite being carried off by the wind

And I stare at an empty sky
and lost
no more than that torn-off string in my hand  ....

This song is from a Hindi classic love story "Prem Rog" ....

Always loved this song ...

Mere kishmat me tu nehin shayad ...
Meh kyun thera inthesare kartha hun
Me tujhe kal bhi pyare kartha tha
Me tujhe ab bhi pyare kartha heh
Me tujhe pyare karega ...

If you are not my destiny
Why then am I waiting for you
I loved you yesterday
I love you today
and I shall love you tomorrow ....
