بہتی ہوا سا تھا وہ
اڑتی پتنگ سا تھا وہ
کہاں گیا، اسے ڈھونڈو!
He was like a cool breeze
He was like a flying kite
Wherever he went, search for him!

بہتی ہوا سا تھا وہ
اڑتی پتنگ سا تھا وہ
کہاں گیا، اسے ڈھونڈو!
He was like a cool breeze
He was like a kite

ہم کو تو راہیں تھیں چلاتی
وہ خُود اپنی راہ بناتا
گرتا، سنبھلتا،
مستی میں چلتا تھا وہ
While we used to follow conventionalisms
he used to build his own way
He used to tumble, then set himself right,
then keep walking in ecstasy
01 :50PlayPause
ہم کو کل کی فِکر ستاتی
وہ بس آج کا جشن
مناتا
ہر لمحے کو کهُلکے جیتا تھا وہ
The anxiety of tomorrow used to trouble us,
he solely used to observe
the celebration of today
He used to go freely at every moment
02 :04PlayPause
کہاں سے آیا تھا وہ
چھو کے ہمارے دِل کو
کہاں گیا، اسے ڈھونڈو!
From wherever he had come
having touched our heart,
wherever he went, search for him!

سلگتی دُھوپ میں چهاؤں کے جیسا 
ریگستان میں گاؤں کے جیسا 
من کے گھاؤ پہ مرہم جیسا تھا وہ
He was like a shade in the burning sun,
and like a village in the middle of the desert
He was like balm on a wound of the heart
03 :05PlayPause
ہم سہمے سے رہتے کُن٘ویں میں
وہ نَدِیا میں غوطے لگاتا
الٹی دھارا چیر کے
تیرتا تھا وہ
We used to remain, like frightened, in a well,
He used to dive headfirst in brooks
He used to swim
having cleft against the current
03 :19PlayPause
بادل آوارہ تھا وہ
یار ہمارا تھا وہ
کہاں گیا، اسے ڈھونڈو!
He was a wandering cloud
He was our companion
Wherever he went, search for him!
03 :36PlayPause
ہم کو تو
راہیں تھیں چلاتی
وہ خُود اپنی راہ بنتا
گرتا، سنبھالتا،
مستی میں چلتا تھا وہ
While we used to follow conventionalisms
He used to build his own way
He used to tumble, then set himself right,
