aap kaheñ to tiin zamāne ek lahr meñ bah nikleñ

aap kaheñ to saarī bātoñ meñ aisī āsānī hai

aap kahen to tin zamane ek hi lahr mein bah niklen

aap kahen to sari baaton mein aisi aasani hai

ulajhtī jaatī haiñ girheñ adhūre lafzoñ

ham apnī bātoñ ke saare agar magar kholeñ

ulajhti jati hain girhen adhure lafzon ki

hum apni baaton ke sare agar magar kholen

tum jo chāho to ruk bhī saktā hai

varna kis se rukā hai aadhā din

tum jo chaho to ruk bhi sakta hai

warna kis se ruka hai aadha din

ik manzar meñ ik dhuñdle se aks meñ chhup ke ro leñ

ham kis ḳhvāb meñ āñkheñ mūñdeñ kis meñ āñkheñ kholeñ

ek manzar mein ek dhundle se aks mein chhup ke ro len

hum kis KHwab mein aankhen munden kis mein aankhen kholen

bahut se lafz dastak de rahe the

sukūt-e-shab meñ rasta khul rahā thā

bahut se lafz dastak de rahe the

sukut-e-shab mein rasta khul raha tha

merī hairat mirī vahshat pata pūchhtī hai

dekhiye kaun kise pahle rasā.ī degā

meri hairat meri wahshat ka pata puchhti hai

dekhiye kaun kise pahle rasai dega

ret hai sūraj hai vus.at hai tanhā.ī

lekin naañ is dil ḳhām-ḳhayālī jaa.e

ret hai suraj hai wusat hai tanhai

lekin nan is dil ki KHam-KHayali jae

jaane kis ḳhvāb hairat ne jagā.e rakkhā

phir mirī hasrat-e-nākām ne dekhā us ko

jaane kis KHwab ki hairat ne jagae rakkha

phir meri hasrat-e-nakaam ne dekha us ko
