kitnay logon nay
tumaray ada k lahmon
ko chahaa
 
aur tumari khoosoorti ko
sachay ya jhoodhay  dil
se chahaa
 
lakin ek shakhs nay
tumhaari zaair ruuh ko chahaa
tumaray chehray par
badaltay gumon ki aks
ko chahaa

'How many loved your moments of glad grace' - W. B. Yeats
 
***
 
How many loved your moments of
glad grace,
And loved your beauty with
love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim
soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your
changing face.
 
-W.B. Yeats

punjabi wich:
 
kitnay logaan nay
teray adaa de pallan
nu chahiya

tay teri khoobsoorti nu
sachhay ya jhuuthay dil
nal pyaar keetaa

par ik aadmi nay
teri paviter aatmaan
nu pyaar keeta tay
teray cheray tay
badalday dukhaan nu dekh k
tainu chahiya.
