Phir mujhe deeda-e-tar yaad aaya

"Splash" by Neha

Phir Mujhe Deeda-e-Tar Yaad Aaya
Dil Jigar Tishna-e-Fariyaad Aaya

[ Deeda-e-Tar =Tearful eyes , Tishna-e-Fariyaad - Desperate to appeal/Thirsty ]

Dum Liya Tha Na Qayamat Ne Hanoz
Phir Tera Waqt-e-Safar Yaad Aaya

[Hanoz= yet/still ]

Saadagii Haaye Tamannaa Yaanii
Phir Wo Nai_Rang-e-Nazar Yaad Ayaa

[Nai_rang=fascinating ]

Zindagi Yu Bhee Guzar hee Jatee
Kyoon Tera Raah Guzar Yaad Aaya

Koi Veerani Si Veerani Hai
Dasht Ko Dekh Ke Ghar Yaad Aaya

[Dasht - Wilderness/Desert ]

Phir terey kuchey ko jaata hai khayal
Dil-e gum gush tha magar yaad aaya

[ Kuchey = narrow street, khayal = thoughts, gush= filled with]

Main Ne Majnu Pe Ladakpan Mein 'Asad'
Sang Uthaya Tha Ke Sar Yaad Aaya

[Asad - Mirza Ghalib's earlier 'Takhallus' i.e. Pen Name, Sang - Stone]

- Mirza Ghalib
