Sher 6

arsh tak jaatī thī ab lab tak bhī aa saktī nahīñ

rahm aa jaatā hai kyuuñ ab mujh ko apnī aah par

it cannot even reach my lips, it used to reach the highest skies

I feel compassion at the sorry condition of my sighs

arsh tak jati thi ab lab tak bhi aa sakti nahin

rahm aa jata hai kyun ab mujh ko apni aah par

it cannot even reach my lips, it used to reach the highest skies

I feel compassion at the sorry condition of my sighs

lahū Tapkā kisī aarzū se

hamārī aarzū Tapkī lahū se

lahu Tapka kisi ki aarzu se

hamari aarzu Tapki lahu se

sirat ke hum ghulam hain surat hui to kya

surKH o safed miTTi ki murat hui to kya
