Quatrain

BY FAIZ AHMED FAIZ

Last night, your lost memories crept into my heart 

as spring arrives secretly into a barren garden 

as a cool morning breeze blows slowly in a desert 

as a sick person feels well, for no reason. 

 

Pakistan, 1911-1984

 

Original Urdu:

Raat yunh dil mein teri khoee hui yaad aayee

Jaise veeraaney mein chupkey sey bahaar aa jaye

Jaisey sehra on mein howley se chaley baadey naseem

Jaisey beemaar ko bey wajhey Qaraar aa jaaye
