javānī se ziyāda vaqt-e-pīrī josh hotā hai

bhaḌaktā hai charāġh-e-sub.h jab ḳhāmosh hotā hai

passion runneth stronger in dotage than in youth

the flame flickers burning brighter ere it dies forsooth

bhaDakta hai charagh-e-subh jab KHamosh hota hai

passion runneth stronger in dotage than in youth

the flame flickers burning brighter ere it dies forsooth
