“Dilbar Janem”

Composition and Original Artist: Ustad Khyal. As they say, old is gold. Rough translation: “There is immense danger involved in separation, my love. There are no good outcomes which can come out of separation, my love. The tree of your beauty has peaked to full bloom. And yet, I haven’t been able to pick anything from it. Don’t worry, my love. I will be your lover for the night. To deny your love would cause anxiety and pain for me as well. Everything seems dark and gloomy around here these days. And I haven’t heard anything from my beloved in a very long time. All of it put together makes it hard for me to sleep at night. But don’t worry, my love, I will be your lover for the night.”
