    Woh jaa chukaa hai
    Magar judaai se qabl kaa
    Ek narm lamha
    Thehar gayaa hai
    Miri hatheli ki pusht per
    Zindagi mein
    Pehli kaa chand bun ker

    He is gone.
    But a tender moment,
    from when he was here
    is stuck;
    On the back of my hand
    (and) in my life
    like a crescent.



    Raks karte hue
    Jis ke shaano.n pe tu ne abhi sir rakha hai
    Kabhi me bhee is ki panaaho.n me thee
    Faraq yeh hai ke me
    Raat se qabl tanha hui
    Aur tu subha tak
    Is fareb-e-tahaffuz me khoyee rahe gee

    while dancing,
    the one upon whose shoulders you rest your head
    i too was once in his safeguard.
    the difference is that i
    was abandoned before dark,
    and you shall remain consumed in this false sense of security till dawn.
