zindagī zinda-dilī hai naam

murda-dil ḳhaak jiyā karte haiñ

zindagi zinda-dili ka hai nam

murda-dil KHak jiya karte hain

terī sūrat se kisī nahīñ miltī sūrat

ham jahāñ meñ tirī tasvīr liye phirte haiñ

teri surat se kisi ki nahin milti surat

hum jahan mein teri taswir liye phirte hain

vo nahīñ bhūltā jahāñ jā.ūñ

haa.e maiñ kyā karūñ kahāñ jā.ūñ

wo nahin bhulta jahan jaun

hae main kya karun kahan jaun

siyah-baḳhtī meñ kab koī kisī saath detā hai

ki tārīkī meñ saayā bhī judā rahtā hai insāñ se

siyah-baKHti mein kab koi kisi ka sath deta hai

ki tariki mein saya bhi juda rahta hai insan se

aane meñ sadā der lagāte rahe tum

jaate rahe ham jaan se aate rahe tum

Delay in arriving always managed to contrive

this world I was leaving, yet you didn't arrive

aane mein sada der lagate hi rahe tum

jate rahe hum jaan se aate hi rahe tum

Delay in arriving always managed to contrive

this world I was leaving, yet you didn't arrive
