I Wish…

Jee chaahe panchi ho jaavaan,                             

Udda jaavaan, gaaonda jaavaan,                         

An-chuh sikharaan nu choo paavaan,                  

Is duniya deeyaan raahvaan bhul ke                     

Pher kade na vaapas aavaan…                           

[English Translation]  

I wish that I could be a bird 

That I could fly, that I could sing,

That I could touch untouchable peaks,

That I could forget the roads of the world,

And never return…

(Few lines from a poem by Shiv Kumar Batalvi)
