Paimana – Zeb and Haniya


My Prayer Tonight

Paimona bideh key khumar astam
Man ashiq e chasm e mast e yaar astam

(Bring me the chalice, so I may lose my self,
for, I’m in love with my Beloved’s intoxicating Gaze.)

Chashmat key bagh e khutan memanaat
Royat ba gulab haye chaman memanaat

(Your Eyes light up my secret garden
Your Face makes luminous every rose therein.)

Gul roo ba kuneed waraq waraq boyee kaanee
Ba lalazar e be watan me yaraat

(Face like a flower, it give petals their sweet fragrance
The mystic land of my Beloved is placeless.)

Man ashiq e chasm e mast e yaar astam
Bedeh bedeh kay khumar astam
Paimona bedah key khumar astam

(I’m in love with my Beloved’s intoxicating Gaze,
Bring! bring! so I may annihilate my self.)
Bring me the chalice, so I may lose my self.

Az O madanet ager khaber me dashtaam
Pesh e qadamat kocha ragul me kashtaam

(If I hear the message of Your sacred arrival,
Under Your feet, I will spread a carpet of flowers.)

Gul me kashtam gul e gulab me kashtam
Khak e qadamt padi dam e war dashtaam

(Spread flowers, Spread rose flowers,
I will sacrifice myself at the dust of Your feet.)

Paimona bideh key khumar astam
Man ashiq e chasm e mast e yaar astam

(Bring me the chalice, so I may lose my self,
I’m in love with my Beloved’s intoxicating Gaze.)
