lagta nahin hai dil mera ujDe dayar mein

lagta nahin hai dil mera ujde dayar mein
kis ki bani hai aalam-e-na-paedar mein

my heart wanders ill at ease / in this ravaged reign
who has found fruition / in transient terrain

in hasraton se kah do kahin aur ja basen
itni jagah kahan hai dil-e-dagh-dar mein

tell these woeful wishes to / go elsewhere and remain
this heart has little room as it / is scarred and full of pain

kanton ko mat nikal chaman se o baghban
ye bhi gulon ke sath pale hain bahaar mein

from throwing throns out of the vale, o gardener, abstain
they too grew, along with flowers, during spring's domain

bulbul ko baghban se na sayyaad se gila
qismat mein qaid likkhi thi fasl-e-bahaar mein

neither to the groundsman nor / to hunter does complain
for songbird to be caged, in spring, did destiny ordain

kitna hai bad-nasib 'zafar' dafn ke liye
do gaz zamin bhi na mili ku-e-yar mein

say how ill-starred is 'zafar', that he could not obtain
e'en two yards, to be interred, in his beloved's lane
