aur bhī dukh haiñ zamāne meñ mohabbat ke sivā

rāhateñ aur bhī haiñ vasl rāhat ke sivā

sorrows other than love's longing does this life provide

comforts other than a lover's union too abide

aur bhi dukh hain zamane mein mohabbat ke siwa

rahaten aur bhi hain wasl ki rahat ke siwa

sorrows other than love's longing does this life provide

comforts other than a lover's union too abide
