Five couplets of Qateel Shifai on unrequited love

That sleepless night takes turns still
Since we had that hideous feud
What do you know, oh! My love
Of the pains of solitude

Five couplets of Qateel Shifai on unrequited love

Let him be, whoever desires, enlightened by its rays
Out in the open have I kept my heart ablaze

Five couplets of Qateel Shifai on unrequited love

Taming still
My restless heart
I too will sleep
In darkened hours
Sleep dear stars! Sleep dear stars!

Five couplets of Qateel Shifai on unrequited love

He too did leave me with love unrequited
Like bliss I accepted whose every sorrow inflicted

Five couplets of Qateel Shifai on unrequited love

With you displeased oh! Dear, my existence
Is like a flower robbed of its fragrance
