How Can You Ever Erase From Your Heart All Of My Memories? A Urdu Ghazal By Aazim Kohli In English Translation

Rating: 5.0
how can you ever erase from your heart all of my memories?
try it and see if you can forget me

lovers in pain do not feel lonely
if you get angry with me, you will be hurting yourself

you will then recall all our past love stories
sometimes you'd laugh coyly, other times you'd cry

the lost moments never come back, you know
where from will you then get the lost moments of love?

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
mirī yādeñ bhalā tum kis tarah dil se miTāoge
bhulā kar to zarā dekho mujhe kaise bhulāoge

mohabbat karne vaale dard meñ tanhā nahīñ hote
jo rūThoge kabhī mujh se to apnā dil dukhāoge

karoge yaad tum guzre zamānoñ kī sabhī bāteñ
kabhī itrā ke hañs doge kabhī aañsū bahāoge

guzar jaate haiñ jo lamhe kabhī vāpas nahīñ aate
to biite pal mohabbat ke kahāñ se le ke aaoge

judā apnoñ se ho kar TuuT jaatā hai koī kaise
jo bichhḌoge kabhī mujh se to ḳhud hī jaan jāoge

baḌhā loge agar tum fāsle mujh se kabhī 'āzim'
to rūdād-e-dil-e-nāshād phir kis ko sunāoge
