Tum Samjho Na Samjho

You May Know or Not

You may know your faithfulness or not

I have made you my God


You may know your wish or not

Your eyes reveal the language of your heart


One life is not enough for me

To love you fully, I need to live many lives


Heart’s content be not, my soul remains restless

In prayer I say all that I have never said

Teri Aahat

Teri Aahat by Sandeep Silas 'deep'

Your Rustle

You skirted my dwelling today as you came to my city

My breath escapes me again and again as I hear your rustle


Once again shadows start floating on the mirror of my heart

Those who don’t have time to stop, they disappear with ease


I do not wait anymore for meetings of love

Or for sweet conversations and wet nights


I don’t know where the environment is leading me

My feet stop no more, listening to voices of this world


Teri Aahat by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)


Ankahi Baat

Unsaid Conversation


Do not become like an unsaid conversation

Sometime, you must say something to me


Do not get lost like we meet strangers

You must stay with me for sometime


Do not hide like unknown feelings

Bring one day, your love to your lips


Do not sleep like an unseen dream

Fire the sky with a spark before you go


Do not get lost like an unwritten story

Narrate something to the world, then go


Do not go, leaving me, with eyes closed

‘Deep’, you must always keep looking at me


Ankahi Baat by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)





Saada Khayal


Plain Thought

Plain the thought or laden with nectar

I never let you be away from my thought


You laughed while you spoke or kept quiet

Each mood of yours, I filled within my breath


You met me with open arms or like a statue

I never let my eyes leave the direction you were


You touched me or became captive of distances

I, but, always saw love within your eyes

Gar Khuda…

If, O God…

If, O God, all that could have been mine

I too would have lived a life like You


Would have seen each one and heard everyone

Everyday I would have sat in Judgement upon each one


I would have lived in every heart, within each soul

Every direction would have resounded with my name


These talks of the world, best thrive here only

I will come up to heaven and meet You in embrace


Gar Khuda… by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)

I lived through the days of life in yearning

This Sun would have set sans your thoughts


I was gifted a treasure since I found you

An excuse I found to preen myself each day


To say some words I found a friend

To write some letters I began a tradition


Your coming made a blossom bloom

One storm subsided and another arose


Aas by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)





I bowed before my indifferent beloved and saw

I reached the heights of love again and again and saw


I called out to her so much more and saw

I went on burning in my own fire of love and saw


I kept on stopping, stooping, and stifling myself and saw

I kept on writing letters of love, pouring out my heart and saw


I held hands, walked along the road and saw

Amidst prayer I opened my eyes in Church and saw


Go on lighting a bed of embers in front of my feet

Keep on sewing my chest with threads of pain


Go on, make my destination again a mirage

I have the heart of a sculptor, I am unstoppable

When the night is dark, you shine like the moon

Why not then, a storm rise up within my heart ?


You my beloved Piya, who resides in the clouds, tell me

Why you lit ‘deep’ on earth, and gave Moon to the sky?


“YOU” by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
