Time

YESTERDAY WHERE HAPPINESS HAD DWELT,
TODAY THERE IS MOURNING
TIME HAD BROUGHT SPRING,
TIME HAS BROUGHT THE DECAYING-(AUTUMN)
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.
WITH THE REVOLUTION OF TIME
LIES THE ADMINISTRATION OF CELESTIAL BODIES,

TIME HAS ALL AT ITS FEET:
WHETHER THE KINGDOM OR THE SOCIETY,
WHETHER THE KINGDOM OR THE SOCIETY.
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.
TO THE TIME IS SUBJUGATED
THE EPHEMERAL SPLENDOURS,
TIME IS A BED OF FLOWERS,
TIME IS A CROWN OF THORNS,

THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.
MAN MUST MAKE IT A POINT
TO BE AFRAID OF TIME,

WHO KNOWS AT WHAT MOMENT
TIME WILL CHANGE ITS TEMPERAMENT,
TIME WILL CHANGE ITS TEMPERAMENT.
THE NIGHT AND THE DAY EXIST BECAUSE OF TIME
THE FUTURE AND THE PRESENT ADHERES TO TIME,
ALL THINGS ARE SUBSERVIENT TO TIME,
THAT WHICH GOVERNS ALL THINGS IS TIME.

Written by famous urdu poet SHAAHIR LUDHIYANAVI.a milestone of movies songs.
