aata hai yaad mujhko guzaraa huaa zamaanaa
memories of days gone by come back to me
vo baaG kii bahaare.n vo sab ka chah-chahaanaa
that garden in spring, all that chitter chatter

aazaadiyaa.N kahaa.N vo ab apane gho.Nsale kii
that freedom of my nest
apanii Khushii se aanaa apanii Khushii se jaanaa
that coming and going as one pleased

lagatii ho choT dil par, aataa hai yaad jis dam
it hurts my heart when i so recall
shabanam ke aa.Nsuuo.n par kaliyo.n kaa muskuraanaa
the petals glowing with those tears of dew

vo pyaarii pyaarii surat, vo kaamiinii sii muurat
that lovely face, that peaceful abode
aabaad jis ke dam se thaa meraa aashiyaanaa
by which my whole world was alive
