Gehraaiyo Mein | Urdu | Nazm

Samandar k daaman mein dooba jahaz hu,

Bebak sahilo ko mera ehsas nhi.

Lehron ki gawahiyo par yakin na karna,

Gehraaiyo me utarna unka mizaz nhi.

Aab-e-ishq me tar h tute khidhki-darwaze.

Yado ki sevaro se saji hai dil ki deewaren,

Tute safine ki kismat yu to intezaar hai,

Sarbaraah laut aayaga, ab iski aas nhi.

Gehraaiyo me utarna unka b mizaz nhi…


A ship drowned in the ocean

That shores forgot about;

Don’t trust what waves say

For depth they know naught.

Broken doors and windows let love flood;

Seeweeds of memories cover my heart;

Though wrecked ships are destined to wait,

The return of the sailor is a hope lost.

For depth they too know naught…

Author’s note: A Nazm in Urdu has multiple quartets stitched together chasing the same thought.
