Faiz: Last night your lost memory so came into the heart

Faiz poem: Raat yun dil mein teri khoi hui yaad aai (Last Night, Your Forgotten Thought Came to Mind), rendered by Hersh

Sahil Ludhianvi

Last night your lost memory so came into the heart

As spring comes in the wilderness quietly,

As the zephyr moves slowly in deserts,

As rest comes without cause to a sick man.

Translated by Victor Kiernan

Sahil Ludhianvi

रात यूँ दिल में तिरी खोई हुई याद आई

जैसे वीराने में चुपके से बहार आ जाए

जैसे सहराओं में हौले से चले बाद-ए-नसीम

जैसे बीमार को बे-वज्ह क़रार आ जाए
