(dhundh ki) apni rajai mein simte
us chaand ko
haule se chooma maine
aaj ki raat
ye chaand bhi
surkh-haya roshan hua hai

a feeble attempt at translation...

snuggled up in own blanket (of fog)
i kissed,
that moon tenderly
this moon has
shined with a blushed-shyness

image courtsey, most of my images are sourced from this site.

Haya uske naam ki ya haya uske pyaar ki, simti hui yadon me guzre raat khumaar ki, mohabbat ne chaand ko
samet liya baahon me, chum k har aansu mitayi har ghadi intzaar ki...
