Last Night - Poem by Vikram Seth

Last night your faded memory came to me
As in the wilderness spring comes quietly,
As, slowly, in the desert moves thew breeze,
As to a sick man, without cause, comes peace

[Original: Urdu, Translated by: Faiz Ahmed Faiz]

    रात यूँ दिल में तेरी खोई हुई याद आयी
    जैसे वीराने में चुपके से बहार आ जाये
    जैसे सेहराओं में हौले से चले बाद-ए-नसीम
    जैसे बीमार को बेवजह करार आ जाए
    (फ़ैज़ अहमद फ़ैज़)
    Beautiful translation of a great poem from Faiz.
