ae jazba-e-dil

 

ae jazba-e-dil gar mai chaahoon, har cheez muqabil aa jaaye

manzil ke liye do gaam chaloon, aur saamne manzil aa jaaye

 

jazba – desire; muqabil – face to face; gaam – step

 

ai dil ki khalish chal yun hi sahi, chalta to hoon unki mehfil mein 

us waqt mujhe chaunka dena, jab rang pe mehfil aa jaaye

 

khalish – pain

 

ai rahbar-e-kaamil chalne ko taiyyaar to hoon, par yaad rahe

us waqt mujhe bhatka dena, jab saamne manzil aa jaaye..

 

rahbar-e-kaamil – a perfect guide

 

ab kyun dhoondoon wo chashm-e-karam, hone de sitam ba-laaye sitam 

mai chaahta hoon ai jazba-e-gham, mushkil pase-mushkil aa jaaye.. 

 

chashme-e-karam – kind eyes; sitam ba-laaye sitam: distress after distress; mushkil pase mushkil – problem after problem

 

haan yaad mujhe tum kar lena, aavaaz mujhe tum de lena 

is raah-e-mohabbat mein koi, dar-pesh jo mushkil aa jaaye

 

dar-pesh – present, confronting.

 

ae jazba-e-dil gar mai chaahoon, har cheez muqabil aa jaye

manzil ke liye do gaam chaloon, aur saamne manzil aa jaaye

 

– behzaad lakhnavi

It is in the nature of longing to never be fulfilled. A deep pain fuels longing, but the pursuit of these longings calls for being benumbed to the shallow reality of the carnival of life. There are guides on the path, but perhaps it is best that they direct you the wrong way just as the destination approaches – for the reality of the destination isn’t the reality of the longing. No longer I seek those kindly eyes, and the grace they gently bestowed. Acquainted with reality, my desire only seeks one obstacle after another.

Yet, my friend, remember me. Call out to me, when, on this path of longing, you too are faced with those inevitable scars of life. I will be there.

  4. but john of the cross would ask you to stay in this reality…

  5. yes, but i feel that can also be, probably, a way of getting attached to certain ‘meaningful experiences’ and demanding meaning from life – when we could just let things be, taoist way.
