Wo Jo Hum Mein Tum Mein Qarar Tha Tumhein Yaad Ho Ki Na Yaad Ho

vo jo ham men tum men qarar tha tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

vahi yaani vaada nibah ka tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

the love that ‘tween us used to be, you may, may not recall

those promises of constancy, you may, may not recall

vo jo lutf mujh pe the beshtar vo karam ki tha mire haal par

mujhe sab hai yaad zara zara tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

those favours that you did bestow, the kindness that you once did show

I can recall them all somehow, you may, may not recall

vo nae gile vo shikayaten vo maze maze ki hikayaten

vo har ek baat pe ruthna tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

new complaints each every night, stories so full of delight

at every word your feigning slight, you may, may not recall

kabhi baithe sab men jo ru-ba-ru to isharaton hi se guftugu

vo bayan shauq ka barmala tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

sitting in midst of company, talking in gestures openly

that expression of love publicly, you may, may not recall

hue ittifaq se gar baham to vafa jatane ko dam-ba-dam

gila-e-malamat-e-aqriba tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

if face to face we chanced to be, to constantly prove loyalty

those plaints of folks’ rebukes to me, you may, may not recall

koi baat aisi agar hui ki tumhare ji ko buri lagi

to bayan se pahle hi bhulna tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

a word of mine if were to be, which hurt you to any degree

forgetting it most instantly, you may, may not recall

kabhi ham men tum men bhi chaah thi kabhi ham se tum se bhi raah thi

kabhi ham bhi tum bhi the ashna tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

friendship twixt us once used to be, a path there was from you to me

once “I” and “you” were not, but we, you may, may not recall

suno zikr hai ka.i saal ka ki kiya ik aap ne vaada tha

so nibahane ka to zikr kya tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

Long past though it appears to be,there was something you promised me

to fulfil each vow truthfully, you may, may not recall

kaha main ne baat vo kothe ki mire dil se saaf utar ga.i

to kaha ki jaane miri bala tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

vo bigadna vasl ki raat ka vo na manna kisi baat ka

vo nahin nahin ki har aan ada tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

you getting angry when we met, at everything getting upset

your nay saying I can’t forget, you may, may not recall

jise aap ginte the ashna jise aap kahte the ba-vafa

main vahi huun ‘momin’-e-mubtala tumhen yaad ho ki na yaad ho

the one you once held close to you, the one whom once you deemed as true

I am that distressed Momin, blue, you may, may not recall
