(Mr. Justice Shah Deen Marhoom)
Late Shah Din Humayun
Teri Chingari Charagh-e-Anjuman Afroz Thi
O Humayun! your life was full of warmth
Your spark was an assembly‐enlightening lamp
Thi Sitare Ki Tarah Roshan Teri Taba-e-Buland
Though your earthly body was slim and weak
Your elegant disposition was bright like a star
Shoala-e-Gardoon Naward Ek Musht-e-Khakstar Mein Tha
How fearless a heart in this frail body was
A universal flame in this handful of dust was!
Shab Ki Khamoshi Mein Juz Hangama-e-Farda Nahin
But the intelligent heart was not at all afraid of death
In night’s silence there is nothing except morrow’s affairs!
Hai Ye Sham-e-Zindagi Subah-e-Dawam-e-Zindagi
The imprudent ones consider death is the end of life
This apparent evening of life is the morning of perpetual life!
