    aah ko chāhiye ik umr asar hote tak

    kaun jiitā hai tirī zulf ke sar hote tak

    A prayer needs a lifetime, an answer to obtain

    who can live until the time that you decide to deign

    dām-e-har-mauj meñ hai halqa-e-sad-kām-e-nahañg

    dekheñ kyā guzre hai qatre pe guhar hote tak

    snares are spread in every wave, and reptiles in each lure

    see, till it turns into a pearl, what must a drop endure

    āshiqī sabr-talab aur tamannā betāb

    dil kyā rañg karūñ ḳhūn-e-jigar hote tak

    Love has a need for patience, desires are a strain

    as long my ache persists, how shall my heart sustain

    tā-qayāmat shab-e-furqat meñ guzar jā.egī umr

    saat din ham pe bhī bhārī haiñ sahar hote tak

    Agreed, you won't ignore me, I know but then again

    Into dust will I be turned, your audience till I gain

    ham ne maanā ki taġhāful na karoge lekin

    ḳhaak ho jā.eñge ham tum ko ḳhabar hote tak

    The Sun's burning intensity is the dewdrop's bane

    So till I'm favoured with a glance, I too shall remain

    partav-e-ḳhur se hai shabnam ko fanā ta.alīm

    maiñ bhī huuñ ek ināyat nazar hote tak

    O ignorant, less than a glance does life's leisure remain

    for the dancing of the spark will the warmth sustain

    yak nazar besh nahīñ fursat-e-hastī ġhāfil

    garmī-e-bazm hai ik raqs-e-sharar hote tak

    save death, Asad what else release from this life of pain?

    a Lamp must burn in every hue till dawn is there again

    ġham-e-hastī 'asad' kis se ho juz marg ilaaj

    sham.a har rañg meñ jaltī hai sahar hote tak

    aah ko chahiye ek umr asar hote tak

    kaun jita hai teri zulf ke sar hote tak

    A prayer needs a lifetime, an answer to obtain

    who can live until the time that you decide to deign

    dam-e-har-mauj mein hai halqa-e-sad-kaam-e-nahang

    dekhen kya guzre hai qatre pe guhar hote tak

    snares are spread in every wave, and reptiles in each lure

    see, till it turns into a pearl, what must a drop endure

    aashiqi sabr-talab aur tamanna betab

    dil ka kya rang karun KHun-e-jigar hote tak

    Love has a need for patience, desires are a strain

    as long my ache persists, how shall my heart sustain

    ta-qayamat shab-e-furqat mein guzar jaegi umr

    sat din hum pe bhi bhaari hain sahar hote tak

    Agreed, you won't ignore me, I know but then again

    Into dust will I be turned, your audience till I gain

    hum ne mana ki taghaful na karoge lekin

    KHak ho jaenge hum tum ko KHabar hote tak

    The Sun's burning intensity is the dewdrop's bane

    So till I'm favoured with a glance, I too shall remain

    partaw-e-KHur se hai shabnam ko fana ki talim

    main bhi hun ek inayat ki nazar hote tak

    O ignorant, less than a glance does life's leisure remain

    for the dancing of the spark will the warmth sustain

    yak nazar besh nahin fursat-e-hasti ghafil

    garmi-e-bazm hai ek raqs-e-sharar hote tak

    save death, Asad what else release from this life of pain?

    a Lamp must burn in every hue till dawn is there again

    gham-e-hasti ka 'asad' kis se ho juz marg ilaj

    shama har rang mein jalti hai sahar hote tak
