, , ,

baag-e-bahisht se mujhe hukm-e-safar diyaa thaa kyon

kaar-e-jahaan daraaz hai ab meraa intazaar kar

Translation

Why did you command me to leave paradise
My work here is unfinished so you wil have to wait

guzar jaa aql se aage ye noor

chiraag -e-raah hai manzil nahi hai

Translation

go beyond knowledge for its illumination
is the lamp to light the way, not the destination

Tu shahin hai parwaaz hai kaam tera

tire saamne asmaan aur bhi hai

Translation

You are an eagle, it is your job to soar

you have many more skies ahead of you
