ujāle apnī yādoñ ke hamāre saath rahne do

na jaane kis galī meñ zindagī shaam ho jaa.e

ujale apni yaadon ke hamare sath rahne do

na jaane kis gali mein zindagi ki sham ho jae

tujh se milne ko be-qarār thā dil

tujh se mil kar bhī be-qarār rahā

tujh se milne ko be-qarar tha dil

tujh se mil kar bhi be-qarar raha

sun to sahī jahāñ meñ hai terā fasāna kyā

kahtī hai tujh ko ḳhalq-e-ḳhudā ġhā.ebāna kyā

sun to sahi jahan mein hai tera fasana kya

kahti hai tujh ko KHalq-e-KHuda ghaebana kya

unheñ bhī jiine ke kuchh tajrabe hue hoñge

jo kah rahe haiñ ki mar jaanā chāhte haiñ ham

unhen bhi jine ke kuchh tajrabe hue honge

jo kah rahe hain ki mar jaana chahte hain hum

sham.a jis aag meñ jaltī hai numā.ish ke liye

ham usī aag meñ gum-nām se jal jaate haiñ

dil to hai na sañg-o-ḳhisht dard se bhar na aa.e kyuuñ

ro.eñge ham hazār baar koī hameñ satā.e kyuuñ

it's just a heart, no stony shard; why shouldn't it fill with pain

i will cry a thousand times,why should someone complain?

dil hi to hai na sang-o-KHisht dard se bhar na aae kyun

roenge hum hazar bar koi hamein satae kyun

it's just a heart, no stony shard; why shouldn't it fill with pain

i will cry a thousand times,why should someone complain?
