Poochho na kaise maine rain beetayee - Lyrics & Translation

Lyrics

Poochho na kaise maine rain beetayee 
Ek pal jaise ek jug beeta 
Jug beete mohe neend na aayee 
Poochho na kaise maine rain beetayee 

Utte jale deepak, itte mann mera 
Phir bhi na jaaye mere ghar ka andhera 
Tarpat tarsat umar gawayeen 
Poochho na kaise maine rain beetayee 


Na kaheen chanda, na kaheen taare 
Jyot ke pyase mere nain bechare 
Bhor bhi aas ki kiran na layee 
Poochho na kaise maine rain beetayee


पूछो ना कैसे मैंने रैन बिताई 

इक पल जैसे इक जुग बीता 
जुग बीते मोहे नींद न आयी




इक जले दीपक इक मन मेरा 
फिर भी न जाये मेरे घर का अँधेरा 
तडपत तरसत उमर गंवाई 




ना कहीं चंदा ना कहीं तारे 
ज्योत के प्यासे मेरे नैन बेचारे 
भोर भी आस की किरण ना लाई 



Understanding "Despair" in English 
Translation
Don't ask how I spent the night. 
Each moment appeared alike an eon 
Eons passed but sleep was nowhere in sight. 

A lamp is flamed there, my soul burns here 
Still, the darkness from my dwelling doesn't disappear. 
In sufferings and in longings I lose my life-light. 

Nowhere is moon nor stars anywhere 
Thirsting for some light are my poor eyes 
Even dawn didn't bring a ray of hope with it.
