From the city hidden behind a hundred mountains,
At the bank of Jhelum as I stand,
I write a poem for my dear homeland.
I dream of such moments that bring me back to such a time,
I dream of me at the top of a mountain, sitting next to a Sufi Shrine.
I yearn the rivers that run through the city, like the desire for freedom,
runs through our blood,
I yearn a gardened red fort for the night, rain such, making the earth become mud.
I remember you in every unfulfilled season I experience in exile,
In every journey I take, all distances I cover, every mile.
The wind is calling for me, Beloved don't close your eyes,
Just a few more moments, we will meet at Sangam at sunrise.
Sangam : Specifically referring to location where river Neelum and Jhelum meet. Otherwise two things meeting one another is known as sangam.
Red fort : A fort located in kashmir, Muzaffarabad.
Jhelum: one of the many rivers that flow through kashmir.
Sufi mountain: reffering to peerchanasi a mountain top in muzaffarabad that beds the shrine of a sufi.
