Raaz ki baatain likhi aur khat khula rehnay diya,
Jaanay kyon rusvaion ka silsila rehnay diya !
[You wrote all the secrets and then left the letter open,
I don't know, why you let the process of disgrace continue !]
 
Umar bhar merey saath reh kar woh na samjha dil ki baat,
Do dilon kay darmiyan ik faasla rehnay diya !
[Even after staying with me for whole life,
    he couldn't understand what my heart wanted,
He let the distances between two hearts stay as it is !]
 
Apni fitrat woh badal paya na iskay bawajood,
Khatam ki ranjish magar gila rehnay diya !
[Inspite of this, he could not change his nature,
He let go the misunderstandings, but he still complained !]
 
Main samjhta tha khushi degi mujhay `Sabir' fareb,
Isliyey mainay gamon say raabta rehnay diya !
[I all along thought that this trick
    will give me some happiness 'Sabir',
That is why I kept communicating to my sorrows !]
 
Raaz ki baatain likhi aur khat khula rehnay diya,
Jaanay kyon rusvaion ka silsila rehnay diya !

                                 - Sabir Jalal Abadi
