When-I-learnt-to-write-by-Nasir-Kazmi-300x169 When I learned to write by Nasir Kazmi

میں نے جب لکھنا سیکھا تھا
پہلے تیرا نام لکِھا تھا

Main ne jab likhna seekha tha

Pehle tera naam likha tha

 

When I learned to write

First of all, I wrote your name

میں وہ صبرِ صمیم ہوں جس نے
بار امانت سر پہ لیا تھا

 

Main wo sabr-e-sameem hoon jis ne

Baar-e-amaanat sar pe lya tha

 

I am the absolute patience that

Look upon itself the weight of trust

 

میں وہ اسمِ عظیم ہوں جس کو
جن ِ و ملَک نے سجدہ کیا تھا

Main wo ism-e-azeem hoon jis ko

Jin-o-malik ne sajda kya tha

 

I am the exalted name to which

Angel and jinns bowed in prayer

توُنے کیوں مِرا ہاتھ نہ پکڑا
میں جب رستے سے بھٹکا تھا

Tu ne kyun mera haath na pakra

Main jab rastay se bhatka tha

 

Why did you not take my hand

When my feet strayed from the path

 

جو پایا ہے وہ تیرا ہے
جو کھویا وہ بھی تیرا تھا

Jo paaya hai wo tera hai

Jo khoya wo bhi tera tha

 

Whatever I have found is yours

Whatever I have lost is also yours

 

تُجھ بن ِ ساری عُمر گزاری
لوگ کہیں گے توُ میرا تھا

Tujh bin saari umar guzaari

Log kahain gay tu mera tha

 

I spent the lifetime without you

People will say that you were mine

 

پہلی بارش بھیجنے والے
میں ترے درشن کا پیاسا تھا

 

Pehli baarish bhejnay waalay..!

Main teray darshan ka pyaasa tha

 

O sender of the First Rains

I thirsted for a glimpse of you
