Us Se Mat Kahna Meri Be-Sar-O-Samani Tak

us se mat kahna miri be-sar-o-samani tak

vo na aa jaae kahin miri pareshani tak

Do not even mention my penury to him

Lest he reaches the crux of my problems

main to kuchh bhi nahin karti huun mohabbat ke liye

ishq vaale to luta dete hain sultani tak

I do virtually nothing for my love

Lovers have been known to forego crowns

kaise sahra men bhatakta hai mira tishna-lab

kaisi basti hai jahan milta nahin paani tak

What is the desert where my parched lips wander

What is this place where no water is to be found

nakhuda dekh chuka kaali ghata ke tevar

badban khol diye us ne bhi tughyani tak

the oarsman has seen the look of the black clouds

He has unfurled the sails till the coming of the storm

pur-khatar raah miri hone lagi hai asan

khauf kis ka hai bhala teri nigahbani tak

My tortuous paths are becoming simple

What fears can there be in your care
