In traditional urdu poetry, in an exaggerated description of the beloved’s beauty her waist is so slender that it disappears. In the same way, a thin mouth is considered beautiful and it is so thin that it cannot be seen. The poet/lover has lost his heart and is asked to find it. He says … not to worry, my heart will be found after you find your waist and mouth i.e. I will continue to lose my heart as long as I see this beauty in you … absence of waist and mouth.

pesh-tar2 aaNkh meri meri nazar3 paida kar  
1.beauty 2.before 3.sight, ability to bear the sight
The beloved is so beautiful and it is difficult even for her to look at herself in the mirror. She does not have the ability to bear that dazzling image. So the poet/lover is asking her to develop eyes as strong as his and fortitude to bear the sight, like he has, before she looks into the mirror.

Normally, the poet/lover should be able to control his tears. But now he is crying so profusely that there is plenty of water flowing.

apni qudrat2 se meri Khaak meN par paida kar

1.annoyed 2.other
The beloved had promised the poet/lover that she would come. When he reminded her of the promise, she gets annoyed and says … the interpretation of what she says a bit confusing to me. I offer three possibilities. (a) She refers to herself as “Ghair” although normally that term is used for the rival of the poet/lover. She considers herself “Ghair” because she is not yet intimate with him, the strength of his love has not yet earned her trust. She admonished him to make a place in her heart. (b) She uses “Ghair” in the conventional sense and refers to his rival. To rub it in, she says that she visits the heart of his rival and that is where he should make his home to receive her. Rather convoluted but here it is. (c) She uses “Ghair” as another woman and asks him to go away and seek love elsewhere. Once again, this is very unconentional and unlikely that he means this.

17
dekhna khel nahiN jalva-e-diidaar1 tera
pahle moosa sa koi ahl-e-nazar2 paida kar   
1.glory of sight/glimpse of the beloved/god 2.ability to see to bear the sight of
It is not child’s play to bear the sight of the glory of the beloved/god. First develop the ability to see like moosa. Again, this is unconventional. Most shu’ara describe moosa as not having the ability to bear the sight of god’s manifestation (lightning), so he fainted. But here the poet accords moosa such ability.

18
dil meN bhi milta hai vo kaaba bhi us ka hai maqaam1
raah nazdik ki aye azm-e-safar2 paida kar
