A Few Moments

dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐
dō pal kī thī yah dilōṁ kī dāstān
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x2]

The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
and then you and I went our separate ways
This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
and then you and I went our separate ways [x2]


tum thē ki thī kōī ujlī kiraṇ
tum thē yā kōī kali muskāī thī
tum thē yā sapnōṁ kā thā sāvan
tum thē ki xuśiyām̐ kī ghaṭā chāī thī
tum thē ki thā kōī phūl khilā
tum thē yā milā thā mujhē nayā jahān

Was it you or was it a luminous ray?
Was it you, or was it a smiling flower bud?
Was it you or was it a Sawan of dreams?
Was it you or there were rainclouds of happiness spread (above me)?
Was it you, or has some flower bloomed?
Was it you, or have I found a new world?


dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐
dō pal kī thī yē dilōṁ kī dāstān
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x2]

The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
and then you and I went our separate ways
This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
and then you and I went our separate ways [x2]


tum thē yā xuśbū havāōṁ mēṁ thī
tum thē yā raṁg sārī diśāōṁ mēṁ thē
tum thē yā rauśnī rāhōṁ mēṁ thī
tum thē yā gīt gūṁjē fizāōṁ mēṁ thē
tum thē milē yā milī thī maṁzilēṁ
tum thē ki thā jādū bharā kōī samāṁ

Was it you, or it was a scent in the winds?
Was it you, or it was color in all directions?
Was it you, or it was brightness in the roads?
Was it you, or there were songs reverberating in the air?
Did I find you, or I found (my) destinations?
Was it you, or some time replete with incantation?


dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐
dō pal kī thī yē dilōṁ kī dāstān
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x3]

The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
and then you and I went our separate ways
This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
and then you and I went our separate ways [x3]
