apnī anā aaj bhī taskīn ham ne

bhar ke us ke husn tauhīn ham ne

apni ana ki aaj bhi taskin hum ne ki

ji bhar ke us ke husn ki tauhin hum ne ki

Iqbal Sajid

bhalā huā ki koī aur mil gayā tum

vagarna ham bhī kisī din tumheñ bhulā dete

bhala hua ki koi aur mil gaya tum sa

wagarna hum bhi kisi din tumhein bhula dete

Khalilur Rahman Azmi

ik roz chhīn legī hamīñ se zamīñ hameñ

chhīneñge kyā zamīñ ke ḳhazāne zamīñ se ham

ek roz chhin legi hamin se zamin hamein

chhinenge kya zamin ke KHazane zamin se hum

ek aañsū ne Duboyā mujh ko un bazm meñ

buuñd bhar paanī se saarī aabrū paanī huī

a single tear caused my fall in her company

just a drop of water drowned my dignity

ek aansu ne Duboya mujh ko un ki bazm mein

bund bhar pani se sari aabru pani hui

a single tear caused my fall in her company

just a drop of water drowned my dignity
