kāñToñ se dil lagāo jo tā-umr saath deñ

phūloñ kyā jo saañs garmī na sah sakeñ

befriend the thorns for they will be loyal until death

what of these flowers that will wilt with just a burning breath

kanTon se dil lagao jo ta-umr sath den

phulon ka kya jo sans ki garmi na sah saken

befriend the thorns for they will be loyal until death

what of these flowers that will wilt with just a burning breath

ġham-e-zamāna ne majbūr kar diyā varna

ye aarzū thī ki bas terī aarzū karte

gham-e-zamana ne majbur kar diya warna

ye aarzu thi ki bas teri aarzu karte

un ras bharī āñkhoñ meñ hayā khel rahī hai

do zahr ke pyāloñ meñ qazā khel rahī hai

un ras bhari aankhon mein haya khel rahi hai

do zahr ke pyalon mein qaza khel rahi hai

inhī ġham ghaTāoñ se ḳhushī chāñd niklegā

añdherī raat ke parde meñ din raushnī bhī hai

inhi gham ki ghaTaon se KHushi ka chand niklega

andheri raat ke parde mein din ki raushni bhi hai

kuchh to tanhā.ī rātoñ meñ sahārā hotā

tum na hote na sahī zikr tumhārā hotā

kuchh to tanhai ki raaton mein sahaara hota

tum na hote na sahi zikr tumhaara hota
