Twilight

Picमौत की हर आहट पर, अब ख़ौफ़ज़दा है ज़िन्दगी

जो कभी दहाड़ती थी, वो अब मिहमिहाती ज़िन्दगी

Life is feeling concerned on every knock of Death,

A life which was once full of energy, vitality, is now feeling powerless

फौलाद इरादे, कर मशक्कत, जिसने सँवारी ज़िन्दगी

वो आज ऑंखें फेर कर, चुप चाप काटे ज़िन्दगी

A life which once had a strong will, and one who had made his life with hard work

Now looks elsewhere and passes each day somehow silently

डर है की गर साथी के बिना, जीनी पड़ी कुछ ज़िन्दगी

गुमनाम कौनो में कैसे कटेगी, घड़ियाँ गिनती ज़िन्दगी

Life is fearful about the prospect of living alone without his/ her spouse,

Wondering if that happened how helpless and insignificant he will feel and will count his days

 

लम्हा लम्हा गिनता है खजाना, ताउम्र कमाई थी जो खुद्दारी,

पूरी पड़ेगी या काम रहेगी, जितनी बची है ये ज़िन्दगी

Each moment he counts the treasure of his self-respect earned through the lifetime of hard work and sincerity,

And wonders will it (my self-respect) last till my last day or not

 

क्या फ़िक्र क्या खौफ है इस, रूह की अटूट राह-इ-गुजर में,

दो महज पड़ाव ही है, मौत और ये ज़िन्दगी

Why one should be concerned about death when life and death are

Nothing but two milestones in the unending journey of the soul

यादो के संदूक में नीचे दबी हुई, अधूरी इच्छाएं है जो,

न देख सकी दिन का सूरज कभी, इस जीवन के व्यापर में,

कड़ी धूप में उनको जल-जला कर, कर दे खाक जब तक है ज़िन्दगी

One should find out all desires which he/she could not fulfilled throughout the busy life

And make sure that these desires do not go with him/ her at the end of this life
