This is a Rubai (sortof like a Quartrain) that I said today.

woh chanda woh sooraj woh saagar woh basti

woh chooti si lambi si woh meri hasti

woh pal pal simatna woh pal pal bikharna

woh hansti hansati si woh meri hasti

Here is a prosaic translation which is a complete disgrace to the original language. Urdu.

that moon that sun that ocean that city

that slightly small slightly long life of mine

that continuous breaking up that continuous rejoining

that happy and smiling life of mine
