Tu Vida Hoiyon (Shiv Kumar Batalvi)


Capture

Sung by me

Lyrics:

TooN Vida HoiyoN
Tu vida hoiyoN
Mere dil te udaasi CHa gayi,
PeeR dil di booNd ban ke
AkheeyaaN vich a gayi.

Door tak meri nazar
Teri paeR nu chumdi rahi,
Fer teri paeR
RaahaaN di miTi kha gayi.

Turan toN pahilaaN si
Tere joban te bahaar,
Turan piCHoN vekhiya
Ki har kali kumla gayi.

Us din piCHoN asaaN
Na boliya na vekhiya,
Ih zabaaN khaamosh ho gayi
te nazar pathra gayi.

Ishk nu saugaat jihRi
PeeR saeN tooN de giyoN,
ANt uheeyo peeR ‘Shiv” nu
KhaaNdi khaaNdi kha gayi.

English Translation:

You left,
And grief cast its pall over me.
My pain condensed into a drop
And rose into my eye.

For a great distance
My sight kissed your footprints,
Until the trail
Was swallowed by the dust of the road.

Before you left,
There was the bloom of your youth,
I turned around after you left
And every flower had wilted.

Since that day
I stopped speaking, I could not see.
My tongue was silenced
My sight turned to stone.

The pain that you gifted
To love,
Was the pain finally
That consumed ‘Shiv’
