Lagta Nahin Hai Dil Mera Ujde Dayar Mein

lagta nahin hai dil mira ujde dayar men

kis ki bani hai alam-e-na-paedar men

my heart, these dismal ruins, cannot now placate

who can find sustenance in this unstable state

kah do in hasraton se kahin aur ja basen

itni jagah kahan hai dil-e-dagh-dar men

desires should be told to find some alternate

this scarred heart has no room to accomodate

kanton ko mat nikal chaman se o baghban

ye bhi gulon ke saath pale hain bahar men

a long life, four days in all, I did negotiate

two were spent in hope and two were spent in wait

bulbul ko baghban se na sayyad se gila

qismat men qaid likkhi thi fasl-e-bahar men

kitna hai bad-nasib ‘zafar’ dafn ke liye

do gaz zamin bhi na mili ku-e-yar men
