Solitude

Posted on: November 18, 2011


is duniyaa me.n sab hai.n akele
Sehba Akhtar

is duniyaa me.n sab hai.n akele
koii kisii kaa nahii.n
kaisii mohabbat kasii vafaaye.n kaise pyaar ke sapane
aaj Khayaalo.n me.n bhii nahii.n hai.n saath jo the kal apane
jhuuThee hai.n sab jag ke mele
saayaa bhii apanaa nahii.n
kaaGaz kii ek naa.Nv hai jiivan koii nahii.n hai maa.Njhii
biich bhavar me.n kaun banaa hai Duubate man kaa saathii
kahate hai.n maujo.n ke rele
koii kinaaraa nahii.n

In this world all are lonely
No one belongs to anybody

What is love, what devotions, what dreams of love?
Today not even in notion, those who were so beloved
All world’s fair are sham
My shadow still not the same

Life is a paper boat, no sailor
Who becomes a buddy of a sinking heart in a whirl?
Gush of waves say that
No shoreline anywhere

Composed by Sehba Akhtar
Translated by Tanveer Rauf

maray dil ki awaz ap dono tuk kaisay pohanchi? bcoz i hv experienced all this situation from birth to till now! in Quran Allah tells us 4 time parents rights after Him. but same time Allah also tells bitter truth about parents specially mother that she wil leave her child on doomsday even who wil b in her womb. this is absolutly true that v all are alone. only out good deeds wil b with us. . .
