Ruke Ruke se kadam ruk ke baar baar chale

Ruke Ruke se kadam ruk ke baar baar chale

Qarar leke tere dar se bekarar chale
Ruke Ruke se kadam ruk ke baar baar chale
Ruke Ruke se kadam
Subah na aayi kai baar neend se jaage
Subah na aayi kai baar neend se jaage
Ki ek raat ki ye zindagi guzaar chale
Ki ek raat ki ye zindagi guzaar chale
Ruke Ruke se kadam
Uthaye phir dekhe ehsaan dil ka seene par
Uthaye phir dekhe ehsaan dil ka seene par
Le tere kadamon mein kazr bhi utaar chale
Le tere kadamon mein kazr bhi utaar chale
Karar leke tere dar se bekarar chale
Ruke Ruke se kadam ruk ke baar baar chale
Ruke Ruke se kadam

Listened to this song/ghazal for the first time in Indian Idol auditions. Hope concluding into detachment is what attracted me to find and listen to it fully. I feel lyrics always flourish in sad emotion than any other. So this is the new and interesting bit of  Hindi poetry I found this week about half-hearted delusions in life.
You can find the song link below –
English translation of the lyrics and back story are here –

A poem

Everyday it’s the same thing, every night it’s the same sky.
Looking same is not a compliment to those who never thought they could.
Ridiculed the rain drops for years on hold,the long I stood.
.
Routine that pass the day into a night
Restlessness that turn the night into bright
Will someday the better claim be achieved
By someone or you
Who actually believed.
.
Make out the same ends differently this time, can’t I?
