Uski Hasrat Hai Jise Dil Se Mita Bhi Na Sakun

us ki hasrat hai jise dil se mita bhi na sakun

DhunDne us ko chala huun jise pa bhi na sakun

the one that I desire, this heart cannot displace

the one who is unattainable I seek to embrace

Daal ke khaak mere khuun pe qatil ne kaha

kuchh ye mehndi nahin meri ki chhupa bhi na sakun

throwing dust upon my blood my murderer proclaims

tis not henna on my palms that I cannot efface

zabt kam-bakht ne yaan aa ke gala ghonta hai

ki use haal suna.un to suna bhi na sakun

Cursed may forbearance be for throttling my voice

Now even tho’ if I wish to, I cannot state my case

naqsh-e-pa dekh to luun laakh karunga sajde

sar mira arsh nahin hai jo jhuka bhi na sakun

If I could but espy her feet would surely genuflect

My head is not the lofty sky that cannot bow in praise

bevafa likhte hain vo apne qalam se mujh ko

ye vo qismat ka likha hai jo mita bhi na sakun

She pens me as unfaithful in her very hand

this is the writing of my fate that i cannot erase

is tarah soe hain sar rakh ke mere zaanu par

apni soi hui qismat ko jaga bhi na sakun

She sleeps so contentedly, her head upon my lap

My fortune that is slumbering, I am loath to raise
