Aaj chhoda hai

Tujh se ummeed to kabhi thi hi nahi
Aaj humne khud hi apna dil maroda hai

Khalish ka ab voh asar na hoga
Khud hi us chubhan ko undekha chhoda hai

Yoon nahin ki dil nahin dard nahin baaki
Bas, apne haathon is dil ko hamne toda hai

Khair ho teri, shab teri, subah teri
Hamnein syahoon ki goonj se ab naata joda hai

Yaad karna agar yaad meri sataaye kabhi
Yaad karna kabhi kisi ne tere liye apna rasta moda hai

Par chaen teri jholi mein na aane doongi
Jo mila tha tujhe voh duniya mein kam se bhi thoda hai
Bekadar, tere intezaar mein barkat rahe
Teri raahein lambi, teri nazar manzil chunti rahe…

Translation:

Tujh se ummeed to kabhi thi hi nahi
Aaj humne khud hi apna dil maroda hai

I had little expectation from you anyway
Today, I have twisted my own heart myself

Khalish ka ab voh asar na hoga
Khud hi us chubhan ko undekha chhoda hai

The itch/unsettled feeling will not affect me so anymore
I have, myself, left pinch/hurt unheeded

Yoon nahin ki dil nahin dard nahin baaki
Bas, apne haathon is dil ko hamne toda hai

It is not that there is no heart, no pain left
But, with my own hands I have broken my this heart of mine

Khair ho teri, shab teri, subah teri
Hamnein syahoon ki goonj se ab naata joda hai

Prosper you, your evenings, your mornings
I have moved on to the echo of darkness

Yaad karna agar yaad meri sataaye kabhi
Yaad karna kabhi kisi ne tere liye apna rasta moda hai

Do remember me if my memory troubles you sometimes
Do remember that once someone changed their very path for you

Par chaen teri jholi mein na aane doongi
Jo mila tha tujhe voh duniya mein kam se bhi thoda hai
Bekadar, tere intezaar mein barkat rahe
Teri raahein lambi, teri nazar manzil chunti rahe…

But I will not grant you peace in your bag/heart
What you had is less than scarce in the world
Unappreciative, may your wait prosper
May your roads be long, may your eyes keep seeking end/purpose

  1. Waah….bahut khoob . Loved it 🙂

    Aankhon Mein Jal Raha Hai Kyun, Bujhta Nahin Dhuaan
    Uthta To Hai Ghata Sa Barasta Nahin Dhuaan

    Aankhon Se Aansoon Ke Marasim Purane Hain
    Mehmaan Ye Ghar Mein Aayen To Chubta Nahin Dhuaan
