Zihaal-e miskeen makun taghafal. Varaye nainaa banayay batiyaa
Ke taab-e-hijraan nadara mai jaan na leho kahe lagaye chatiyan
Shabaan-e-hijran daraz chun zulf wa rozay waslat cho umar kota
Sakhee piya ko jo main na dekhun to kaise katun andheree ratiyan?
Do not ignore my misery by your flattering eyes, and weaving tales
My patience has overflown now, my love, why do you not take me to your heart?
Long like curls of the night of separation, short like life on the day of our reunion
My love, how will I complete such night like a the dark dungeon, without your face in front of me?
