Anonymous, Punjabi Poet

Saari raat tere takni a raah
taareyan to puch chanwe
kyon tere pichche hoi han tabaah
saareyan to puch chanwe

-A Punjabi folk lyric

***

Every night I wait
Seeing the way you’ll come,
Ask the stars, my love
They will tell you.

Why have I lost
Everything for you?
Ask others, my love
They will tell you.
