When I saw you I Imagine! (Translation of Romantic Ghazal - Tumko Dekha To Yeh Khayaal Aaya, Singer... Jagjeet Singh, Lyricist...Javed Akhtar)


When I saw you I imagine
Life is sunshine
you are dense shadow

Today once again my heart longed for
Today once again I pacified my heart

When you are gone, left me thinking
What I lost and what I gained

Why did the time sang the song
Which I cannot hum a while?

Lyricist......Javed Akhtar
Singer........Jagjit Singh
Music Director...Kuldeep Singh
Movie.......Saath Saath(1982)

(Note..Dear Javed Akhtarji, I couldn't translate it well, as your lyrics are quiet powerful to do correct translation, since this stand to be my favourites, I am just trying it. The last two lines interchanged)
