Are you Homesick? Where is your Home?

 

Rukhsat ae bazm-e-jahan! soo-e-watan jata hoon mein
Aah! is abaad weerane mein ghabrata hun mein

Qaad hei darbar-e-sultan-o-shabistan-e-wazir
Torr ker nikle ga zanjeer-e-talai ka aseer

Go barri lazat teri hamgama arai mein hai
Ajnabiat si magar teri shanasai mein hai

Mudat’on tere khud aaraon se hamsuhbat raha
mudat’on betaab mauj-e-bahr ke surat raha

Mudat’ot batha tare hangama-e-ishrat mein  main
Roshni ki justuju karta raha zulmat mein main

Mudat’on dhunda  kia nazara-e-gul,  khar mein,
Aah! voh Yusuf na hath aia tere bazaar mein

Chashm-e-haran dhundti ab aur nazara ko hai
Arzo sahil ki mujh tufaan ke mare ko hei

—–Iqbal, Bang-e-Dara
