Sher 48

qurbateñ hote hue bhī fāsloñ meñ qaid haiñ

kitnī āzādī se ham apnī hadoñ meñ qaid haiñ

qurbaten hote hue bhi faslon mein qaid hain

kitni aazadi se hum apni hadon mein qaid hain

kahānī likhte hue dāstāñ sunāte hue

vo so gayā hai mujhe ḳhvāb se jagāte hue

kahani likhte hue dastan sunate hue

wo so gaya hai mujhe KHwab se jagate hue

maiñ ḳhayāl huuñ kisī aur mujhe sochtā koī aur hai

sar-e-ā.īna mirā aks hai pas-e-ā.īna koī aur hai

I am someone else's thought, someone else brings me to mind

my image in the mirror wrought, someone else is there behind

main KHayal hun kisi aur ka mujhe sochta koi aur hai

sar-e-aina mera aks hai pas-e-aina koi aur hai

I am someone else's thought, someone else brings me to mind

my image in the mirror wrought, someone else is there behind
