ishq mein ghairat-e-jazbaat ne rone na diya

ishq mein ghairat-e-jazbaat ne rone na diya
warna kya baat thi kis baat ne rone na diya
in love i could not weep fearing loss of dignity
else for my not crying what reason could there be
aap kahte the ki rone se na badlenge nasib
umr bhar aap ki is baat ne rone na diya
you had said that weeping would alter no one's fate
coz of this advice of yours i couldn't cry to date
rone walon se kaho un ka bhi rona ro len
jin ko majburi-e-haalat ne rone na diya
tell those who wish to grieve for them i will lament
whom cruel compulsions from crying did prevent
tujh se mil kar hamein rona tha bahut rona tha
tangi-e-waqt-e-mulaqat ne rone na diya
on meeting you i wanted to cry and cry and cry
but due to lack of time this urge i couldn't satisfy
ek do roz ka sadma ho to ro len 'fakir'
hum ko har roz ke sadmat ne rone na diya
if it were but for a day or two i would have cried
but due to daily suffering this too was thus denied

ye daulat bhi le lo ye shohrat bhi le lo

By

ye daulat bhi le lo ye shohrat bhi le lo
bhale chhin lo mujh se se meri jawani
magar mujh ko lauta do wo bachpan ka sawan
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
ye daulat bhi le lo ye shohrat bhi le lo
bhale chhin lo mujh se meri jawani
magar mujh ko lauta do bachpan ka sawan
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
mohalle ki sab se nishani purani
wo budhiya jise bachche kahte the nani
wo nani ki baaton mein pariyon ka dhera
wo chehre ki jhuriyon mein sadiyon ka phera
bhulae nahin bhul sakta hai koi
wo chhoti si raaten wo lambi kahani
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
khadi dhup mein apne ghar se nikalna
wo chidiyan wo bulbul wo titli pakadna
wo gudiyon ki shadi pe ladna jhagadna
wo jhulon se girna wo girte sambhalna
wo pital ke chhanw ke pyare se tohfe
wo tuti hui chudiyon ki nishani
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
kabhi ret ke unche tilon pe jaana
gharaunde banana bana ke mitana
wo masum chahat ki taswir apni
wo khwabon khilaunon ki jagir apni
na duniya ka gham tha na rishton ke bandhan
badi khubsurat thi wo zindagani
ye daulat bhi le lo ye shohrat bhi le lo
bhale chhin lo mujh se meri jawani
magar mujh ko lauta do bachpan ka sawan
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
wo kaghaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani
