My life was gloomy, dark and filled with sadness,
Lacking in joy, delight and happiness.
Each day felt to be heavy to bear
Without any companion to love and care.
"Homesickness" too trapped me as I was away from home.
And this whole world appeared to me as a ruthless dome.
In those days of despair, you came into my life
And aided me ease my daily strife.
You appeared as a ray of hope amid immense sorrowfulness
And seemed to me the brightest star in the sky full of intense darkness.
My life began to change
With the dead flowers blooming again.
The garden of my life was earlier colourless
But you added colour into it making it the brightest.
Now I can proudly say that you turned my life into a vibrant and beautiful "Gulzar".
