I never had trouble speaking as I do now.
Your meeting place was not like it is now.
Who has taken away my patience and calm?
I was never this impatient like now, O heart!
God knows the magic that was in her eyes,
My emotions never ran so deep as they do now,
I lacked the power of observation,
I never was overwhelmed as I am now.
I never had trouble speaking as I do now!
This is my favorite song. I’m posting it again for my day fifteen assignment.November 20, 2015
I never had this much trouble speaking like I have now
Just like your gathering is not the same as before
Who took away your patience and serenity today
You were never this restless dear heart
God knows how those eyes hypnotized me
I was never this docile before
Bewitching eyes were always my enemy but
Never was I a victim to those eyes as I am now
Just as your gathering now is not the same as before
The singer of this ghazal is Runa Laila from Bangladesh, the lyrics is by Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal Emperor of India.
