Ab lagan lagi ki kariye - Translation (Abida Parveen/Bulleh Shah)



Ab lagan lagi ki kariye
Na Jee Sakiye Na mariye

| Dard andar da andar saRay
| Bahar karan ta ghayal hu
| Haal assan da kevein janan
| Jo dunya te mayal hu
| Bahar samndar ishqe wala
| Har dam rehnda hayal hu
| Pohanch hazoor asaan nahi
| Asan naam tere day sayal hu

Tum suno humari baina
Aaye raat dinay nahi chaina
Hun pe bin palak na sariye

Ae agan birhon di bhari
Koi humri preet nivaari
Bin darshan kaisay tariye

| ae tan mera chashman hovey
| te main murshad veekh na rajhan hu
| murshad da dedar ha meeno
| lakh karooran hajan hu

Bulla pai museebat bhari
Koi karo humari kaari
Aehoje dukh kaisay jariye

I long for you, what can be done?
I cannot live, I cannot die.

Listen to my plea,
Night or day, I have no peace.
Not another moment can I exist without you.
I long for you, what can be done?

This separation-torment is unending!
Does anyone have a cure for it?
If I do not see him, how will I live?
I long for you, what can be done?

Says Bulha, I am in great distress,
O please find a remedy.
How can I endure such pain?
I long for you, what can be done?
