The Cage

Just tried my best to translate in my words of the popular and lovely poetry of Sir Faiz Ahmed Faiz hope you guys like it

گلوں میں رنگ بھرے باد نوبہار چلے

چلے بھی آؤ کہ گلشن کا کاروبار چلے

Flowers are colourful and winds blow of spring

Let’s come so that business of garden can run

قفس اداس ہے یارو صبا سے کچھ تو کہو

کہیں تو بہر خدا آج ذکر یار چلے

The cage is sad O friends tell something to pleasant wind

In somewhere today be the mention of beloved anyway

جو ہم پہ گزری سو گزری مگر شب ہجراں

ہمارے اشک تری عاقبت سنوار چلے

What happened to me passed, but in the night of separation

My tears will be the reason of decor your consequences

مقام فیضؔ کوئی راہ میں جچا ہی نہیں

جو کوئے یار سے نکلے تو سوئے دار چلے

In the way of Faiz’s place there is no other one was suitable

Those who come out from the heart of beloved, then out from the world
