रात पुरानी

निखरा था छत पर चाँद नूरानी
आयी है याद फ़िर रात पुरानी ।१।

बिन सुलाए मुझे खुद सो गयी है
मेरे तकिये पर रात पुरानी ।२।

है क्या कोई सौदागर इसका
किस मोल बिकेगी रात पुरानी ।३।

बढ़ता जाता है ख़ुमार उतना ही
जितनी होती है रात पुरानी ।४।

क्यों नहीं भूल जाता अमित
गयी बात हुई रात पुरानी ।५।

  1. English translation

    fresh in mind, nights so old
    terraces lit by ancient moon

    nights that slept on my pillow
    leaving me awake and alone

    what will you pay for this hollow
    what can I get for nights so old?

    intoxication deepens with the Moon
    nights grow dark, grow so old

    I try to run, I try to quit
    memory lanes cold, nights so old
