‘Nadiya Kinaare Dhuwaan Uthe Re’ – Nasir Kazmi(?)

.
Smoke rises by the river’s shore
It bodes not well, I fear
What if for whom I all things forswore
Lies on his pyre there?
.
.
nadiya kinaare dhuwaan uthe re
(river bank smoke rises)
mien jaanun kuch howe re
(I know something happens)
jis kaaran main jogan bani
(that reason I ascetic became)
kaheen woh hi na jalta howe
(what if he is burning)
.
I like these words because they express beautifully the desperation and anxiety that intense love can incite
