Feels Like A Dream

Today, I read a poem by Muneer Niazi, titled “Khawab Ki Kaifiat” (Feels Like A Dream). I liked it very much and decided to translate in English and share it with you.

Clouds have covered the entire sky
I have forgotten my home

I stepped out of home, something
Important to buy

After stepping out of home
I have forgotten my home

Now I’m looking for it
Unable to understand, how to look for it

A tree or two
Sometime, somewhere a known face

And a familiar building far away
Unable to understand

With such incomplete signs
How will I reach my home

Surrounding me, is a dream like feeling
And my heart is desiring to return home

    Lovely! Can you post the Urdu but using a Roman script? Would love to read it that way!
