Apni Jolangah Zair-e-Asman Samjha Tha Mein

Apni Jolangah Zair-e-Asman Samjha Tha Mein

Apni Jolangah Zair-e-Asman Samjha Tha Mein
Aab-o-Gil Ke Khail Ko Apna Jahan Samjha Tha Mein

Methought (Me-thinks) my racing field lay under the skies,
This plaything of water and clay, I regarded as my world;

Behijabi Se Teri Toota Nigahon Ka Tilism
Ek Rida’ay Neelgoon Ko Asman Samjha Tha Mein

Thy unveiling broke the spell of searching glances,
I mistook this blue vault for Heaven.

Karwan Thak Kar Faza Ke Paich-o-Kham Mein Reh Gya
Meher-o-Mah-o-Mushtari Ko Hum Ana Samjha Tha Mein

The Sun, the Moon, the Stars, methought, would keep me company,
Fatigued, they dropped out in the twists and turns of space:

Ishq Ki Ek Jast Ne Tay Kar Diya Qissa Tamam
Iss Zameen-o-Asman Ko Be-Karan Samjha Tha Mein

One leap by Love ended all the pother,
I fondly imagined, the earth and sky were boundless.

Thi Kisi Darmanda Rehro Ki Sada’ay Dardnaak
Jis Ko Awaz-e-Raheel-e-Karwan Samjha Tha Mein

What I esteemed as the clarion call of the caravan,
Was but the plaintive cry of a traveller, weary and forlorn.
