Wo rulakar bhi hans na paaya der tak , jab main ro kar muskuraya der tak
( He made me cry but could not laugh , when I smiled with tears in my eyes for a long time.)
Bhoolna chaha agar usko kabhi, Aur bhi yaad aaya der tak
(Whenever I tried to forget him , I was reminded of him all the more for a long time )
Bhooke bachchon ki tassalli ke liye , Maa ne phir paani pakaya der tak
(Just to make the hungry kids happy , their mom cooked plain water for a long time)
Gungunaata jaa raha tha ek fakir , dhoop rehti na saaya der tak.
(A homeless beggar kept humming this line , Neither does sunshine nor shadows last for a long time)
