Life is Sun, Love is Shade – Translation of Jagjit Singh’s Tumko Dekha To Yeh Khayaal Aaya


Tum ko dekha to ye khayaal aaya 

Zindagi dhoop tum ghana chaaya 

When I saw you, it dawned upon me
that life is sun, and you are shade

Aaj phir dil ne ik tamanna ki
Aaj phir dil ko humne samjhaaya

Today again my heart pined 
Today again I consoled my heart 
Tum chale jaaoge to sochenge 

humne kya khoya humne kya paaya 

When you go away I will think
What I lost and what I gained

Hum jise gunguna nahin sakte
Waqt ne aisa geet kyoon gaaya 

One that I cannot even whisper
Why did life sing such a song?
