Title: Sigh?a Aaween – ????? ???? – Come Swiftly

Language: Punjabi, Siraiki

Poetry: Sachal Sarmast (1739-1826) and Sultan Bahu (c.1628-1691)

Sassi roams the blistering desert in desperate search of Sanwal, her beloved Punnun. His beautiful image has taken root in her heart, pervading all her senses. A Quranic verse states, “There remaineth but the Countenance of thy Lord of Might and Glory”. Sassi’s frenzied quest for union is an allegory for the call of the human soul to reunite with the Divine Source. The poet knows that love and the torment of separation is a universal experience; his pain is still acute and particular.

Lyrics

??? ??? ???? ?? ???? ???? ?? ?? ???? ???

alaf ala chambe di boo?i murshid man wich laai hu

alif, the first letter of God’s name, is a jasmine flower that the Guide has planted in my heart – He!

??? ????? ?? ???? ???? ?? ??? ?? ???? ???

nafi asbaat da paani milyo har rage har jaai hu

watered with negation and affirmation (no God, but God) was each vein and each pore – He!

???? ???? ??? ????? ??? ????? ?? ??? ???

andar boo?i mushk machaai jaan phulaan te aai hu

inside, the plant stirred a musky tumult of fragrance when the flowers of gnosis blossomed – He!

???? ???? ???? “????” ??? ???? ???? ????

jeewe murshad kaamil baahu jain eh boo?i laai

long live my Consummate Guide, O “Bahu”, who planted this chaste flower

????? ???? ????? ???

sigh?a aaween saanwal yaar

come swiftly, dark, handsome love!

????? ??????? ???????

roandi watadiyyaan zaarozaar

I wander weeping wretchedly

????? ???? ????? ???

sigh?a aaween saanwal yaar

come swiftly, dark, handsome love!

??? ???? ?? ???? ??? ?? ??? ????? ??? ???

raat diyaan wich saang sajan de rahn hamesha sard raat

the nights and days of separation from my lover always remain bitterly cold

?? ?? ???? ?? ?? ???? ??? ???? ?? ???? ???

jo ik waari mar ke jeewe fer unaan ki marna hu

he who, after death, once more lives, what fear has he of death then – He!

???? ??? ?? ?? ?????? ?? ?? ???? ???? ???

duniya uto jis din bhaawen us din parda karna hu

from the world, the day he chooses his mortal frame he can quit – He!

????? ?????? ??? ?????????

raahaan te?iyaan roz golaindiyaan

each day, I scour the roads you travelled

?? ??? ???? ???? ?? ???

man tu aaween kainhn wal yaar

oh, would to God you come back, love!

????? ???? ????? ???

sigh?a aaween saanwal yaar

come swiftly, dark, handsome love!

??? ???? ?? ??? ?? ????? ?? ???? ??? ?? ???? ???

jain ?eenh da main dar tain?e te sajdah sahi ja keeta hu

at your door, from the day that I did bow my forehead in the True Court – He!

?? ???? ?? ?? ??? ??????? ??? ????? ?? ???? ???

us ?eenh da sir fida uthaaeen bya darbaar nah leeta hu

from that day, my head (life) is devoted to that Court; no other court have I since sought – He!

?? ???? ???? ????? ??? ????? ???? ???

sir ?ewan aakhan naaheen shaad piyaala peeta – hu

they’d give up their heads than give up His Secret, who have drunk from the Cup of Gladness – He!

??? ????? ????? ??? “????” ????? ??? ????? ???? ???

main qurbaan tinhaan ton baahu jinhaan ishq salaamat keeta hu

I am sacrificed for those ones, O “Bahu”, who have (like Husain) safeguarded Pure Love – He!

?? ???? ?? “????” ????

dar te?e te sachchu jehe

at your door, like the lowly “Sachchu”

???? ???? ???? ?? ???

aashiq lakh hazaar o yaar

(must be) countless ardent lovers, love!

????? ???? ????? ???

sigh?a aaween saanwal yaar

come swiftly, dark, handsome love!
