The Poet and His Poetry

The movie Saajan starring one of the most graceful actors – Madhuri Dixit had the most amazing and romantic songs. The lyrics of all the songs are so meaningful and if there were a better copy, you’d agree the music is harmonious too. My poem is inspired draws inspiration from this song.

Like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song{which I have embedded below for your convenience} as you read; it’ll be like a short film …in song and poetry! I wrote this poem with hopes of making it a song one day. I think it’d be an excellent pick as a song for something like ‘Four more shots’. If anyone wishes to collaborate with me to make some good music in a way where we can retain our individual copyrights and credits, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

The Poet and His Poetry – poem by Ruelha

I am the poet; you are my poetry
All day, everyday, I obsess over you only
If I am the artist, you are my muse
Without your inspiration, I'm just a recluse

If I am the bread, you are the delectable butter
Without you encompassing me, it'll be a dry supper
And sure, bread's the main ingredient here
But butter elevates taste and enhances flavour

Both of these go well together
One's not more important than the other
As delicious as it may be, nobody eats plain butter
And there's really nothing exciting about bread on a platter

If I am the eye, you are my vision
It's always about you; you influence every decision
I adjust everything to accomodate you
Because I see you in my future too

You are the tune to my song
Without you, the music is wrong
If I am the one singing
Melody and harmony, you be bringing

You are the oxygen in my air
Without you, my lungs are filled with despair
Sure, I'll be inhaling and exhaling
But it's a wonder how I'll be surviving

Yours is the only name on my lips
You've taken over like a speech eclipse
And when I speak, all in vain
By mistake, I always take your name

You know my heart is calling out to you
Without you the red in my veins are turning blue
You gave rise to bitter-sweet restlessness
Oh, how did I give in to callous recklessness!

You are the lyrics to my song
Without you, there's only instruments, no singing along
I am the poet; but, you are my poetry
When you're away, I swell with anxiety

I am the poet; and you are my poetry
Every moment of my life, I dedicate unto you solely!

Lyrics of Tu Shaayar Hain, Main Teri Shaayari with Hindi to English Translation

Teri har nazm tera har geet hai yaad mujheI remember every verse and song that is yours
Teri har nazm tera har geet hai yaad mujheI remember every verse and song that is yours
Jab tak saans chalegi na bhoolungi main toh tujheI won’t forget you until my last breath
Tere bina jeena nahi khake kasam kehti hoonI swear, I don’t want to ever live without you
Tere bina jeena nahi khake kasam kehti hoonI swear, I don’t want to ever live without you
Maine bina dekhe bina jaane tujhe dil de diyaWithout knowing or seeing{weighing the pros and cons}, I gave my heart to you
Tu dhadkan haiYou’re the heartbeat
Main teri zindagiI’m your life
Tu shayar haiYou’re the poet

Apni betaabi ka main kaise tujhse izhaar karoonHow should I convey my restlessness
Apni betaabi ka main kaise tujhse izhaar karoonHow should I convey my restlessness
Kaise batlaun tujhe jaan-e-jaana kitna main pyar karoonHow should I tell you, my beloved, about how much I love you
Lab pe koi naam nahi tere sivah mere saajanMy beloved, only your name is upon my lips
Lab pe koi naam nahi tere sivah mere saajanMy beloved, only your name is there upon my lips
Mere is dil pe tera hi nasha chha gayaMy heart is intoxicated and drunk with you
Tu deewanaYou’re the {passionate/mad} lover
Main teri deewangiI’m the passion/obsession/madness
Tu shayar haiYou’re the poet
Main teri shayariI’m your poem
Tujhe milne ko dil karta haiMy heart desires to meet you
Tujhe milne ko dil karta haiMy heart desires to meet you
O mere saajanaO my beloved
Tu shayar haiYou’re the poet
Main teri shayariI’m your poem
Tu aashiq haiYou’re the (mad)lover
Main teri aashiquiI’m your (maddening)love
It’s an old song with poor clarity; not a very enjoyable experience. I wish I could present a better version
