Do Pal



dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐ The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ and then you and I went our separate ways
dō pal kī thī yah dilōṁ kī dāstān This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x2] and then you and I went our separate ways [x2]


tum thē ki thī kōī ujlī kiraṇ Was it you or was it a luminous ray?
tum thē yā kōī kali muskāī thī Was it you, or was it a smiling flower bud?
tum thē yā sapnōṁ kā thā sāvan Was it you or was it a Sawan of dreams?
tum thē ki xuśiyām̐ kī ghaṭā chāī thī Was it you or there were rainclouds of happiness spread (above me)?
tum thē ki thā kōī phūl khilā Was it you, or has some flower bloomed?
tum thē yā milā thā mujhē nayā jahān Was it you, or have I found a new world?


dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐ The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ and then you and I went our separate ways
dō pal kī thī yē dilōṁ kī dāstān This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x2] and then you and I went our separate ways [x2]


tum thē yā xuśbū havāōṁ mēṁ thī Was it you, or it was a scent in the winds?
tum thē yā raṁg sārī diśāōṁ mēṁ thē Was it you, or it was color in all directions?
tum thē yā rauśnī rāhōṁ mēṁ thī Was it you, or it was brightness in the roads?
tum thē yā gīt gūṁjē fizāōṁ mēṁ thē Was it you, or there were songs reverberating in the air?
tum thē milē yā milī thī maṁzilēṁ Did I find you, or I found (my) destinations?
tum thē ki thā jādū bharā kōī samāṁ Was it you, or some time replete with incantation?


dō pal rukā xvābōṁ kā kārvām̐ The caravan of dreams stopped for a few moments,
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ and then you and I went our separate ways
dō pal kī thī yē dilōṁ kī dāstān This story of hearts was of (lasted only) a few moments'
aur phir cal diē tum kahām̐ ham kahām̐ [x3] and then you and I went our separate ways [x3]
