    fariyād koī lai nahīñ hai

    naala pāband-e-nai nahīñ hai

    no tune is needed by a sigh

    laments do not on flutes rely

    kyuuñ bote haiñ bāġhbān toñbe

    gar baaġh gadā-e-mai nahīñ hai

    why gourds do gardeners now plant

    if wine, the garden does not want

    har-chand har ek shai meñ hai

    par tujh koī shai nahīñ hai

    although in everything you be

    yet there is none who is like thee

    haañ khā.iyo mat fareb-e-hastī

    har-chand kaheñ ki hai nahīñ hai

    by being be you not deceived

    is not however is believed

    shādī se guzar ki ġham na hove

    urdī jo na ho to dai nahīñ hai

    if joy's eschewed, no grief at all

    if spring's not there, nor will be fall

    kyuuñ radd-e-qadah kare hai zāhid

    mai hai ye magas qai nahīñ hai

    why Priest, does bowl of wine displease

    'tis wine, not excrement of bees

    hastī hai na kuchh adam hai 'ġhālib'

    āḳhir kyā hai ai nahīñ hai

    if being and nothingness are naught

    what is? then tell me O is not

    fariyaad ki koi lai nahin hai

    nala paband-e-nai nahin hai

    no tune is needed by a sigh

    laments do not on flutes rely

    kyun bote hain baghban tonbe

    gar bagh gada-e-mai nahin hai

    why gourds do gardeners now plant

    if wine, the garden does not want

    har-chand har ek shai mein tu hai

    par tujh si koi shai nahin hai

    although in everything you be

    yet there is none who is like thee

    han khaiyo mat fareb-e-hasti

    har-chand kahen ki hai nahin hai

    by being be you not deceived

    is not however is believed

    shadi se guzar ki gham na howe

    urdi jo na ho to dai nahin hai

    if joy's eschewed, no grief at all

    if spring's not there, nor will be fall

    kyun radd-e-qadah kare hai zahid

    mai hai ye magas ki qai nahin hai

    why Priest, does bowl of wine displease

    'tis wine, not excrement of bees

    hasti hai na kuchh adam hai 'ghaalib'

    aaKHir tu kya hai ai nahin hai

    if being and nothingness are naught

    what is? then tell me O is not
