Poems

Ham ki maGaluub-e-gumaa.N the pahale

ham ki maghaloob-e-gumaa the pahale
phir vahee hai kee jahaa the pahale

[maghaluub-e-gumaa = defeated by suspicion/doubt]

Khvaahisheau jhurriyaa ban kar ubharee
zakhum seeney meh nihaa the pahale

[jhurriyaa = wrinkles; nihaa = hidden]

ab to har baath pe ro detey hai
vaaquif-e-sood-o-ziyaa the pahale

[vaaquif-e-sood-o-ziyaa = aware of profit and loss]

dil se jaise koee kaantaa nikalaa
ashk aankau se ravaa the pahale

ab faquat anjuman-aaraay hai
aitabaar-e-dil-o-jaa the pahale

[faquat = merely; anjuman = gathering (place)]
[aaraay = decoration]
[aitabaar-e-dil-o-jaa = those who had complete faith]

dosh pe sar hai ki hai barf jamee
ham to sholau kee zubaa the pahale

[dosh = shoulder]

meree hamzaad hai tanhaa-ee meree
aise rishte bhee kahaa the pahale

[hamzaad = born at the same time]
