سنو اے وقت کی موجوں ذرا نظرِ کرم کرنا
میرے اس دیس میں سب امن کی گھڑیاں ترستے ہیں
پھر اک بار دکھلا دو بہاراں کس کو کہتے ہیں
یونہی تعبیر کر دو خواب جو آنکھوں میں بستے ہیں

Translation

Listen O’ waves of time, shower your kindness
Everyone in my country longs for moments of peace
Show them spring once more
Make this dream come true
