Remembering Mohd Rafi ‘Tere Bin Soone Nayan Hamare…’ - Part 1

Keheta hain koi dil gaya, dilbar chala gaya,


Saahil pukarta hain samandar chala gaya,

Sach baat magar keheta nahi koi,

Duniya se mousique ka payamber chala gaya.

(Some say heart has broken as sweet heart has departed

Sea shore laments sea saying the sea has departed

But nobody tells the truth

That the Prophet of Music had departed from the world)
