Ghazal 20

Sher-o-Shayari 21

yahī fasāna rahā hai junūñ ke sahrā meñ

kabhī firāq ke qisse kabhī visāl baat

It has always been so in the desert of mad longing

sometimes the legends of partings, sometimes the talk of meeting

yahi fasana raha hai junun ke sahra mein

kabhi firaq ke qisse kabhi visal ki baat

It has always been so in the desert of mad longing

sometimes the legends of partings, sometimes the talk of meeting

vaqt ḳhāmosh hai TuuTe hue rishtoñ tarah

vo bhalā kaise mire dil ḳhabar pā.egā

Time, like snagged relationships,is silent

I wonder how he will find news of me

waqt KHamosh hai TuTe hue rishton ki tarah

wo bhala kaise mere dil ki KHabar paega

Time, like snagged relationships,is silent

I wonder how he will find news of me

shikasta-dil añdherī shab akelā rāhbar kyuuñ ho

na ho jab ham-safar koī to apnā bhī safar kyuuñ ho

Broken herted, why is the traveler alone in the dark night

When there is no one to walk beside, why am I on this journey

shikasta-dil andheri shab akela rahbar kyun ho

na ho jab ham-safar koi to apna bhi safar kyun ho

Broken herted, why is the traveler alone in the dark night

When there is no one to walk beside, why am I on this journey

kitāb-e-zīst unvān ban ga.e ho tum

hamāre pyaar dekho ye intihā sāhab

You have become the title of the book of life

Such is the extent of my love, sahab

kitab-e-zist ka unwan ban gae ho tum

hamare pyar ki dekho ye intiha sahab

You have become the title of the book of life

Such is the extent of my love, sahab

ye shafaq chāñd sitāre nahīñ achchhe lagte

tum nahīñ ho to nazāre nahīñ achchhe lagte

ye shafaq chand sitare nahin achchhe lagte

tum nahin ho to nazare nahin achchhe lagte
