Mohabbat Tark Ki Maine Gareban Si Liya Maine

mohabbat tark ki main ne gareban si liya main ne

zamane ab to khush ho zahr ye bhi pi liya main ne

love I have renounced and sewn the collar that was ripped

O world now you be happy for this poison I have sipped

abhi zinda huun lekin sochta rahta huun khalvat men

ki ab tak kis tamanna ke sahare ji liya main ne

though I am alive, I often think, when there is no throng

based on what desire, tell me, have I lived this long

unhen apna nahin sakta magar itna bhi kya kam hai

ki kuchh muddat hasin khvabon men kho kar ji liya main ne

though I cannot possess her, it’s of major consequence

that for a while, her in my dreams, I did experience

bas ab to daman-e-dil chhod do bekar ummido

bahut dukh sah liye main ne bahut din ji liya main ne

the vestment of my heart o helpless hopes now leave alone

I’ve lived far too long and sorrows ample have I borne
