Har roz banaati hai woh shehd si baat
Ke khayaal hamaara hai unko din-o-raat

Magar tanhaa guzarthe hai hum jab
Tho lab pe aatha hai yeh shikwa-e-dil

‘Kya mumkin nahi zara der
Nikaale is dildaar ki aur’

Every day she makes a honey-like claim
‘About you do I think all the time’.

But as I pass through moments very silent
Then on my lips does arise heart’s plaint

‘Is it not possible for time some more
To spend for the one you utterly adore?’

Dec 28 2002 after Isha prayer.
