Moments – Translations IV

From Time, a beautiful moment is born
Some smiles and a few tears, it brings along
With them, our blank faces, does it adorn
And tinges our lips red with its delicate song.

From Time, doth a beautiful moment fall
Giving us a glimpse when we expect it not
On searching, it is not to be found at all
Though with a story, has it marked its spot.

These beautiful moments, ready to leave
Even before we can them, fully perceive
Like flower buds which, even as they bloom
Bid us a scented goodbye with their perfume

– An inspired translation of Gulzar’s Aane waala pal
