Has anyone come again, sad heart?
No, there is no-one there.
A wayfarer perhaps?
He’ll go elsewhere.
The night has melted into nothingness,
the dim twinkling of stars
The sleepy lamp falters in the hallway;
the street has fallen asleep,
giving up on travellers.
has wiped out all the footprints.
Blow out the lamps,
take away the wine, the glass and bottle.
Lock your dreamless doors!
No-one will come here now
-Faiz Ahmad Faiz
