اب تو آنکھوں میں سماتی نہیں صورت کوئی
گور سے میں نے تجھے کاش نہ دیکھا ہوتا
Ab Toh Aankhon Mein Samati Nahi Surat Koi
Gor Se Maine Tujhe Kaash Na Dekha Hota
Now no image settles in my eyes,
I wish I had not gazed at you with such intensity.
अब नेत्रों में कोई चित्र बसता नहीं,
मैं काश इतनी तीव्रता से तुम्हें नहीं देखता।
