Last Night

Last night your faded memory came to me
As in the wilderness spring comes quietly,
As, slowly, in the desert moves thew breeze,
As to a sick man, without cause, comes peace

Thanks for the translation of this great write.....
रात यूँ दिल में तेरी खोई हुई याद आयी जैसे वीराने में चुपके से बहार आ जाये जैसे सेहराओं में हौले से चले बाद-ए-नसीम जैसे बीमार को बेवजह करार आ जाए (फ़ैज़ अहमद फ़ैज़) Beautiful translation of a great poem from Faiz.
