When I Tell Him, A Urdu Poem In English Translation - Poem by Ravi Kopra

When I tell him -
Listen, it is the real thing
He laughs at me and says
I must be dreaming.

When I tell him
What he is doing is not the right thing
He says with a grin
I must be joking.

When I tell him
We love him so dearly
He is one of a kind, he rebuffs -
It must be coincidentally.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hakikat Kaho To Unko Khwab Lagta Hai
Shikayat Karo To Unko Majak Lagta Hai
Kitni Shiddat Se Unhen Yaad Karte Hain Hum
Aur Ek Vo Hain Jinhen Ye Sab Ittefak Lagta Hai

-Annon

    A good one, Ravi; here is to you one of Zia Fatehabadi from me:
    داستانِ الم سُنا دوں گا
    داغ ہاۓ جگر دکھا دوں گا
    وقت کا انتظار ہے مجھکو
    پردۂ راز خود اُٹھا دوں گا
    (Report)Reply

    Soni sahib, shukria bahut, bahut. Thanks for stopping by and posting Zia's lines.
