Kaifi Azmi wrote this beautiful Gazal for 1982 movie ARTH that had Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Rohini Hathangadi, Kulbushan Kharbanda and Raj Kiran in the  lead roles. Jagjit Singh and his wife Chitra Singh scored music for this film and sang some beautiful songs penned by Kaifi Azmi. 

"Tu apne dil ki jawaan dhadkanon ko gin ke bata
meri tarah tera dil beqaraar hai ke nahin ?

Teri umeed pe thukraa raha hoon duniya ko
tujhe bhee apne pe ye aitbaar hai ke nahin?

Jhuki jhuki si nazar beqaraar hai ke nahin?
Daba daba sa sahee dil mein pyaar hai ke nahin? "

In English ,I would say like this..

(Just count the youthful throbs of your heart and let me know,
Is it also  restless like my heart   or not ?
This world ,I am rejecting in  your  hope  ,
Do you also have a faith like this or not?

Does this doleful gaze convey longing within your heart?
Does it convey love even if concealed within  or held back ?)
