मख़्दूम मोहिउद्दीन | Makhdoom Mohiuddin — आपकी याद आती रही रातभर | aapki yaad aati rahi raatbhar (with English translation)

Translation: Turn Off

आपकी याद आती रही रातभर
चश्म-ए-नम मुस्कुराती रही रातभर

aapki yaad aati rahi raatbhar
chashm-e-nam muskuraati rahi raatbhar

Memories of you kept recurring, all through the night
My eyes moistened and smiled, all through the night

रातभर दर्द की शमआ जलती रही
ग़म की लौ थरथराती रही रातभर

raatbhar dard ki sham’a jalti rahi
gham ki lau thartharaati rahi raatbhar

All through the night, the candle of anguish burned on
The flame of sorrow quivered, all through the night

बाँसुरी की सुरीली सुहानी सदा
याद बन-बनके आती रही रातभर

baansuri ki sureeli suhaani sada
yaad ban-banke aati rahi raatbhar

The dulcet song of the flute called out to me
Like a recurring memory, all through the night

याद के चाँद दिल में उतरते रहे
चाँदनी जगमगाती रही रातभर

yaad ke chaand dil mein utarte rahe
chaandni jagmagaati rahi raatbhar

Your memories, like glowing moons, lit up the heart
The moonlight shone bright, all through the night

कोई दीवाना गलियों में फिरता रहा
कोई आवाज़ आती रही रातभर

koyi deevana galiyon mein phirta raha
koyi aavaaz aati rahi raatbhar

Wasn’t that a frenzied lover wandering the lanes
A voice echoed around, all through the night
