tum mire paas hote ho goyā

jab koī dūsrā nahīñ hotā

in such a manner are you close to me

when no one else at all there ever be

tum mere pas hote ho goya

jab koi dusra nahin hota

in such a manner are you close to me

when no one else at all there ever be

jo baDh kar KHud uTha le hath mein mina usi ka hai
