I And You
Teri Nigah Hai Fitrat Ki Raazdaan, Phir Kya
My eye is unacquainted with the taste for the Sight
Your eye is the knower of Nature’s secret, so what?
Teri Murad Pe Hai Door-e-Asman, Phir Kya
My tongue is indebted to the complaint against time
The universe’s rotation depends on your will, so what?
Atta Falak Ne Kiya Tujh Ko Ashiyan, Phir Kya
The sky kept me wandering in garden like the breeze’s current
The sky has bestowed the abode over you, so what?
Mere Naseeb Mein Hai Kawish-e-Zyan, Phir Kya
The wealth of your life is free of desire for gain
In my heart is the anxiety of loss, so what?
Mera Jahaz Hai Mehroom-e-Badbaan, Phir Kya
Your planes are flying about in the air
My ship is devoid of the sail, so what?
Chaneen Shadem Cha Shad Ya Chanan Shadem Cha Shad
I became strong, so what, I became weak, so what?
This happened, so what, that happened, so what?
Tu Gar Bahr Shudi, Ma Khazan Shadem, Cha Shad
Tranquillity does not exist to any extent in this rose‐garden!
If you became spring, and I became autumn, so what?
