What did I get?

A Seemab Akbarabadi ghazal. It has been sung by the legendary K.L Sehgal:

ab kya bataoon main tere milnein se kya mila
irfaan-e-gham hua mujhe, dil ka pata mila

( How should I describe what I have got by being associated with you,
  I have gained the wisdom of pain, I have understood my own heart)

jab door tak na koi faqir aashna mila
tera niyaaz-mand tere dar se ja mila

( When I could find no friendly saint in my searches,
  I, your humble worshipper sat in front of your door… forever)

manzil mili, murad mili, mudaa mila
sab kuch mujhe mila jo tera naqsh-e-pa mila

( I found an aim, I found desire, I found the meaning of life
  I found all these things when I found the print of your feet)

ya zakham-e-dil ko cheer ke seene se phenk de
ya aitraaf kar ke nishaan-e-wafa mila

( Either rip out the scars of your heart and throw them out
  Or accept that your heart has got the signature of sincerity)

“Seemab” ko shagufta na dekha tamam umar
kambakht jab mila hamein kam-aashna mila

( I have never found “Seemab” cheerful in his whole life
  whenever I met him he was unhappy and unfriendly)

Kanwar

=======================================================================
mazaa aa jayega mahshar mein kuch sunne sunaane ka
zubaan hogi hamaari aaur kahaani aapki hogi

( On the day of Judgement the greatest moment will be when,
  I recite the story of my life but it would be a story about you)
