(Bal-e-Jibril-006) Kya Ishq Aik Zindagi-e-Mastaar Ka (کیا عشق ایک زندگی مستعار کا) What avails love when life is so ephemeral

Kya Ishq Aik Zindagi-e-Mastaar Ka
Kya Ishq Paidar Se Na-Paidar Ka

What avails love when life is so ephemeral?
What avails a mortal’s love for the immortal?

Woh Ishq Jis Ki Shama Bujha De Ajal Ki Phoonk
Uss Mein Maza Nahin Tapish-o-Intizaar Ka

Love that is snuffed out by death’s passing blast
Love without the pain, the passion that consumes?

Meri Bisaat Kya Hai, Tab-o-Taab-e-Yak Nafas
Shole Se Bemehal Hai Ulajhna Sharaar Ka

A flickering spark I am, aglow for a fleeting glance
Flow vain for a flickering spark to chase an eternal flame!

Kar Pehle Mujh Ko Zindagi Javidan Atta
Phir Zauq-o-Shauq Dekh Dil-e-Beqarar Ka

Grant me the bliss of eternal life, O Lord,
and mine will be the ecstasy of eternal love.


Kanta Woh De Ke Jis Ki Khatak La-zawal Ho
Ya Rab! Woh Dard Jis Ki Kasak La-zawal Ho

Give me the pleasure of an everlasting pain
An agony that lacerates my soul for ever.
