This is a beautiful poem by my father Mohammed Yousuf Uddin with my English translation.
Manzil ki justajoo mein kai karwaan chale
waqt guzar jayega in baatoun mein
Be chehrgi ki shaher mein jaane kahan chale
To reach the destination do the task let`s go walk!
Don`t waste your time in useless loose talk!
there is a lot of noise in the city I don`t know where to walk!
Yaadi saba chale kabhi baade hazaa chale
Mehroomiyan wa ghum mere saath is tarah
jaise ke saath saath koi meherbaan chale
I Walk in the morning and in the evening I walk
I have sorrows and grief with me walking
like a kind shadow a friend they walk!
Aaker khizaan thhaher gayi gulistaan mein
Jab chhod ker chaman ko kai baaghbaan chale
Winter and snow have spoiled the harvest and floral gardens
When gardeners leave for the warmer place they walk!
Malik ne paar kerdiya Yousuf ki naav ko
behre adab mein yun toh kai kashtiyaan chale!
God has helped me reach my destination and has crossed my boat
By the way, there were many boats on the sea that walk!
