عمر بھر لکھتے رہے پھر بھی ورق سادہ رہا

جانے کیا لفظ تھے جو ہم سے تحریر نہ ہوئے


He continued to write throughout his life, yet the paper remained simple

What were the words that were not written by us?


वे जीवन भर लिखते रहे, फिर भी कागज साधारण ही रहा

ऐसे कौन से शब्द थे जो हमारे द्वारा नहीं लिखे गए थे?

میں قصہِ مختصر نہ تھا

ورق کو جلدی پلٹ گئے تم


I was not a short story

You turned the page quickly


मैं कोई लघुकथा नहीं थी

आपने जल्दी से पन्ना पलट दिया

کبھی خود کو میری جگہ رکھ

تجھ کو ترس نہ آئے تو چھوڑ جانا


Never put yourself in my place

Leave if you don’t feel pity

दया न आए तो छोड़ दो

جرم کے تصور میں گر یہ خط لکھے تم نے

پھر تو میری رائے میں جرم ہی کیے تم نے


You wrote this letter under the illusion of guilt

Then, in my opinion, you have committed a crime


आपने यह पत्र अपराधबोध के भ्रम में लिखा है

फिर, मेरी राय में, आपने अपराध किया है

جان لیوا تھیں خواہشیں ورنہ

وصل سے انتظار اچھا تھا


Deathly wishes were otherwise

The wait from Wasl was good


मृत्यु की इच्छा अन्यथा थी

वास्ल का इंतजार अच्छा रहा

ہر شخص نے پرکھا ہے ایسے

ہر امتحان ہم پر فرض ہو جیسے


Everyone has tested it

Every exam is obligatory for us


सभी ने इसका परीक्षण किया है

हर परीक्षा हम पर अनिवार्य है

سارے فرشتے ہی ملے ہیں ہمیں تو

کوئی غلطی کرتا ہی نہیں ہمیشہ ہم ہی غلط ہوتے ہیں


We have found all the angels

No one makes mistakes, we are always wrong


हमने सभी स्वर्गदूतों को पाया है

गलती कोई नहीं करता, हम हमेशा गलत होते हैं

رابطے حد سے گزر جائیں تو غم ملتے ہیں

ہم اسی واسطے لوگوں سے کم ملتے ہیں


If the contact goes beyond the limit, there will be grief

We meet people less because of this


यदि संपर्क मर्यादा से परे चला गया तो दु:ख होगा

इस वजह से हम लोगों से कम मिलते हैं

میری منزل سے کہو آؤ

مسافر تھک گیا تیرا


Say come to my destination

The traveler is tired of you


कहो मेरी मंजिल पर आओ

यात्री आपसे थक गया है

بڑی راحت کے دن تھے

تیری پہچان سے پہلے


There were days of great relief

Before your recognition


बड़ी राहत के दिन थे

आपकी पहचान से पहले

قیس و فرہاد کے فرسودہ فسانوں پہ نہ جا

کون مرتا ہے محبت میں ؟ سبھی جیتے ہیں


Don’t go by the outdated fables of Qais and Farhad

Who dies in love? Everyone wins


क़ैस और फरहाद की पुरानी दंतकथाओं पर मत जाइए

प्यार में कौन मरता है? हर कोई जीतता है

He must have settled somewhere


जिसने मुझे छोड़ दिया

वह कहीं बस गया होगा
