ik roz chhīn legī hamīñ se zamīñ hameñ

ek roz chhin legi hamin se zamin hamein

chhinenge kya zamin ke KHazane zamin se hum

gilā bhī tujh se bahut hai magar mohabbat bhī

vo baat apnī jagah hai ye baat apnī jagah

gila bhi tujh se bahut hai magar mohabbat bhi

wo baat apni jagah hai ye baat apni jagah

Basir Sultan Kazmi

burī sarisht na badlī jagah badalne se

chaman meñ aa ke bhī kāñTā gulāb ho na sakā

buri sarisht na badli jagah badalne se

chaman mein aa ke bhi kanTa gulab ho na saka

añgḌā.ī bhī vo lene na paa.e uThā ke haath

dekhā jo mujh ko chhoḌ diye muskurā ke haath

she couldn't even stretch out with her arms upraised

seeing me she smiled and composed herself all fazed

angDai bhi wo lene na pae uTha ke hath

dekha jo mujh ko chhoD diye muskura ke hath

she couldn't even stretch out with her arms upraised

seeing me she smiled and composed herself all fazed
