It is the dream afraid of waking that never takes a chance
=
जागरणभयग्रस्तस्वप्नः न कदाप्यवसरमायच्छति

It is the one who will not be taken who cannot seem to give
=
यो न दातुं शक्नोति सः न स्वीकृतः भविष्यति

And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live
=
मृत्युभयग्रस्तात्मा न कदापि जीवितुं शिक्षते च

so always remember that we were born to die
=
तस्माद्वयं मर्तुं जाताः इति सदैव स्मर
