(Bang-e-Dra-068) Akhtar-e-Subah

Akhtar-e-Subah
The Morning Star

Sitara Subah Ka Rota Tha Aur Ye Kehta Tha
Mili Nigah Magar Fursat-e-Nazar Na Mili

The dawn’s star was weeping and saying this
“I got the eye but not the leisure for Sight

Huwi Hai Zinda Dam-e-Aftab Se Har Shay
Aman Mujhi Ko Teh-e-Daman-e-Sehar Na Mili

Everything has come to life through the sun’s energy
Only I did not get protection under the morning’s skirt

Bisat Kya Hai Bhala Subah Ke Sitare Ki
Nafas Habab Ka, Tabindagi Sharare Ki

After all what is the capacity of the dawn’s star
It is like bubble’s breath, like the spark’s brightness”

Kaha Ye Main Ne Ke Ae Zaiwar-e-Jabeen-e-Sehar !
Gham-e-Fana Hai Tujhe ! Gunbad-e-Falak Se Uter

I said “O beautiful jewel of the dawn’ s forehead
Do you have fear of death? Come down from the sky


Tapak Bulandi-e-Gardoon Se Hum-Rah-e-Shabnam
Mere Riyaz-e-Sukhan Ki Faza Hai Jaan Parwar

Drop down from the sky’s height with the dew
My poetry’s field will be invigorating to you

Main Baghban Hun, Mohabbat Bahar Hai Iss Ki
Bina Misal-e-Abad Paidar Hai Iss Ki

I am the gardener, Love is its bloom
Its foundation is firm like eternity
