Tche Roass gham choan Chhum Humdum ya Chha Kum,
Ya Gham Zakhmun Mei Chhum Marrhum Ya Chha kum,
Ba Kyaah Karra Vassal Kiss Shihliss Sharaabus,
Firaaqaetch Dugg Ta Dil Burhum Ya Chha kum.........................
( Moti Lal Saqi )


My simple English rendering of these lines is as under ..

In Your absence ,
Your sorrows turn my companion ,
Isn’t this enough for me ?
Like a relieving balm ,Your pain acts upon my wounds ,
Isn’t this enough for me ?
What shall I do with the soothing intoxication of our reunion ?
This pain of separation ,
This Desolation of my heart ,
Isn’t this enough for me ?
