Poetry/Poem – Dil Ki Khair – Faiz Ahmed Faiz

How long does my heart get to be still?

How long do you make me wait?

How long will you keep it tranquil?

Before crashing through my mind’s floodgates?

Love me for a lifetime, or leave me broken You do, as you whim

Everything in my control is taken As I dance to the beats of your rhythm

The hope of seeing you is now a season past

My eyes blinded by dust and grain

When will the sky with grief be overcast

When will you let the clouds rain?
