Ek saans sang aaye zindagi,
Ek saans sang dafan ho jaaye,
Ek kiran roshni jo bhar de aalam,
Ek kiran roshni sab dhundla chod jaye,
Kya janoon main, kya doon main bhoola,
Sab us jhroke mein ghum ho jaye.
Impasse (English Translation of Dwand)
Life comes with a breath,
And is trapped in a coffin with its departure,
A ray fills up a space,
And leaves it obscure also,
What shall I remember and what shall be forgotten,
When it all gets lost in the moment.
