...a lover's touch

Poetry: Pakistani Urdu - Qateel Shifai
Art: A.R Chugtai (Pakistan)
Translation: Dr. Amanullah De Sondy.


...teri har chap say jaltay hain khayaloon mein chiragh
yours...every footstep...sets thoughts alight like burning lamps...expectations..angst...unease

jab bhi tu ayee jagata huwa jadoo ayee 

you arrive...you awaken every magic in your path

tujh ko choo loon to phir e jan-ay-tamanna mujh ko...der tak apnay badan say teri khushbu aye
touching you, O life of my desires, leaves my body lingering with your scent for a long time

tu baharoon ka hai unwan tujhay chahoon gaa
you are certainly the epitome...index...title...of spring...I will continue to adore you...
