Prayer (dua)

English translation

Prayer

Whom shall I ask
Why this is so?
This world says nothing.
Even time here leaves no mark.
Goodness knows how many lips have complaints on them.
There are many things missing from life,
Why do we keep dreaming of those
when fate takes them away from our hands
for no reason?
 
The prayer I sent... went
and hit the sky
in such a way that it came back
 
My life has taken such a turn
I cannot see a way forward.
My heartbeat has left my heart.
But how can I leave the shadow of my body?
 
I keep thinking of this again and again
I'm alone here
And with me walk
dreams made of smoke
 
The prayer I sent... went
and hit the sky
in such a way that it came back
 
The prayer I sent... went
and hit the sky
The prayer I sent...
The prayer I sent...

I wanted to retain some of the beauty of the poetry so I have not translated everything word for word, rather just given the gist of it.

dua

Kisse poochoon
Hai aisa kyun
Bezubaan sa yeh jahaan hai
Khushi ke pal..kahan dhoondhoon
Benishaan sa waqt hi yahan hai
Jaane kitne lub pe giley hai
Zindagi se kai faasley hai
Ussey jeete hai sapne kyun aankhon mein
