Was it something I said?

لفظ  کوئی مجھ سے خطا ہو گیا ؟

الہی  وہ کیوں  آج  خفا  ہو  گیا ؟

Did i say

A word misspoken?

Dear God!

What made her angry today?

j

داغِ قبا تیری محفل نے دیکھے

رازجو  نہاں تھا،  فشا  ہو  گیا

Your friends

Saw what I was hiding

My secrets were revealed

To my embarrassment

j

ربط  و  مراسم  مانندِ ابر  بکھرے

وو ساتھ چلتے پھرتے، جدا ہو گیا

We separated

As clouds do

Walking by my side

She walked away

j

اور کس حد تک چاہوں اسے

جو  آرزو  تھا،  دعا  ہو  گیا

How far am I to go?

In loving her

She was once my desire

And now my prayer

j

نہ جانے کیا آئی اس کافر کے دل میں

کل  تک  انسان تھا،  اب  خدا  ہو گیا

And what came into her heart

Till yesterday

She was human

And now behaves as a god?

j

بےادب خدا کی بات کرتا ہے کیوں؟

فرضِ  بندگی ترا،  کب  ادا  ہو گیا ؟

Insolence!

You speak of God!

Have you discharged

Your duties to her?

j

اپنی ہستی سے بڑھ گیا استاد

درِ بو  تراب کا ، گدا  ہو  گیا

I became more

Than what I was

I became a beggar

A Faqir

j

آج تیرے سوا کسی کا خیال آیا

نہ جانے کیسے، یہ دغا ہو گیا

Today I thought

Of someone other than you

I do not know

How I betrayed you
