na-jāne kaisī nigāhoñ se maut ne dekhā

huī hai niiñd se bedār zindagī ki maiñ huuñ

na-jaane kaisi nigahon se maut ne dekha

hui hai nind se bedar zindagi ki main hun

kabhī kabhī to achchhā-ḳhāsā chalte chalte

yuuñ lagtā hai aage rasta koī nahīñ hai

kabhi kabhi to achchha-KHasa chalte chalte

yun lagta hai aage rasta koi nahin hai

jaane phir muñh meñ zabāñ rakhne masraf kyā hai

jo kahā chāhte haiñ vo to nahīñ kah sakte

jaane phir munh mein zaban rakhne ka masraf kya hai

jo kaha chahte hain wo to nahin kah sakte
