Bhai Dooj Poem
Sister cares for a brother
all he needs is his love
doesn’t want any gifts
Just brother’s happiness is immeasurable
neither gold nor silver
no elephant palanquin
just come visit me, brother
eat food made with love
oh god so cute my brother
my mother’s darling is my brother
don’t give him any trouble god
Wherever you are, spend your life happily
I am sitting on a plate.
you come now don’t wait
Don’t be afraid now you are from this world
Your sister is standing to fight
These days are decorated with love
How cut brother Tere Bin
Now this smile seems like a burden
Now you don’t get this punishment
The clarinet of happiness rings in the courtyard
Always adorned with a lamp by my brother
no sorrow in his life
Just be kind to your God forever
By worshiping Bhai Dooj,
I wait for him.
When will you come to meet me
When will my door be decorated?
I am sitting on a plate with decorations, brother.
I have brought sweets and nuts, brother.
Don’t play a blind eye to me,
Fill my pocket with love.
When will it come to my door
When will this wait end?
