ā.īnoñ ko zañg lagā

juuñ darvāza kholā hai us ḳhushbū aa.ī hai

aaj bahut din baad main apne kamre tak aa nikla tha

jun hi darwaza khola hai us ki KHushbu aai hai

aaj mujh ko bahut burā kah kar

aap ne naam to liyā merā

aaj mujh ko bahut bura kah kar

aap ne nam to liya mera

ab to us ke bare mein tum jo chaho wo kah Dalo

wo angDai mere kamre tak to baDi ruhani thi

ab tum kabhī na aaoge yaanī kabhī kabhī

ruḳhsat karo mujhe koī va.ada kiye baġhair

ab tum kabhi na aaoge yani kabhi kabhi

ruKHsat karo mujhe koi wada kiye baghair

kuchh nahīñ āsmān meñ rakkhā

apna rishta zamin se hi rakkho

kuchh nahin aasman mein rakkha
