this is a free verse poem

By: Mirza Sharafat Hussain Beigh

Hum  to  yun  aam   hai,  pur naaz    hotey
Warna  ap   par   bhi   asar   andaz   hotey

Tere  saaz  se  kaha  mili   hai  meri  awaaz
Phir   tere   asraar    ke    humraaz   hotey

Dikhatey hum manatey  hai  yaaru ko kaise
Kabhi  aa.kar wo hum se  to naraaz  hotey

Is Ishq me daikhey  hain  jo  Qatal gah  bhi
Kaash  us   inteha  ke  hum  aghaaz   hotey

Is  bey-jaan shayiri se wo ro padi  Sharafat
Shayir na hotey, kam az kam jaanbaz hotey




English Translation.

I am just common one, what if I would have been full of elegance

In such a case, I would have been impactful upon you


My voice and your music has never coincided

Else I would have been a confidant of your secrets


I would have have manifested, how to persuade the sulky friends

But no one has ever became sad with me


And those who have seen the place of execution, in the affair of love

Oh! What? if I would have been a beginning of such extreme compassion


Sharafat, these lifeless verses have made her to mourn and wail

You should be a courageous lover, not just a poet
