bahut pahle se un qadmoñ aahaT jaan lete haiñ

tujhe ai zindagī ham duur se pahchān lete haiñ

bahut pahle se un qadmon ki aahaT jaan lete hain

tujhe ai zindagi hum dur se pahchan lete hain

maut bhī ilaaj ho shāyad

zindagī koī ilaaj nahīñ

for death a cure there well may be

but for this life no remedy

maut ka bhi ilaj ho shayad

zindagi ka koi ilaj nahin

for death a cure there well may be

but for this life no remedy

ek muddat se tirī yaad bhī aa.ī na hameñ

aur ham bhuul ga.e hoñ tujhe aisā bhī nahīñ

ek muddat se teri yaad bhi aai na hamein

aur hum bhul gae hon tujhe aisa bhi nahin
