Thoughts at the party

arz hai:

 

aaj milke bhi unse na kuch baat ki,

hai majboorian mere haalat ki!

 

( I met her today but I could not say anything…

see the constraints imposed by my situation)

 

arz hai:

 

hum bare naaz se aaye thay teri mehfil mein

kya khabar thi lab-e-izhaar pe taale honge

 

( With great pride I came to your party

but little did I know that your expressive lips will be locked)

 

sher arz hai:

hum bhi gaye thay “jigar” jalwa-gaah-e-jaana mein

woh poochte hi rahe, hum se baat ho na saki

 

( I also went to see the beauty of my beloved “Jigar”

she kept asking me questions, but I could not reply)

 

ik last sher arz hai:

 

hasrat-e-deed thi aaur yeh umeed thi ke armaan dil ka nikal jayega

par khabar hi na thi ki naquaab uthte hi barq gir jayegi toor jal jayega

 

( I had a great desire to see her and I also thought that my desire will be fulfilled

But little did I know that when she lifts her veil lightening will fall and enything will burn)

=============================================================================

kis masarrat se pahunche thay hum bazm mein rooh ki tishnagi ko chupaaye hue

saaqi ka daur aaya chala bhi gaya aaur hum reh gaye jaam uthaaye hue

 

( with great joy I reached the party hiding my intense thirst

The Saqi poured wine for everyone but I sat there with an empty glass)
