    maiñ banjāra

    vaqt ke kitne shahroñ se guzrā huuñ

    lekin

    vaqt ke is ik shahr se jaate jaate muḌ ke dekh rahā huuñ

    soch rahā huuñ

    tum se merā ye naatā bhī TuuT rahā hai

    tum ne mujh ko chhoḌā thā jis shahr meñ aa kar

    vaqt ab vo shahr bhī mujh se chhūT rahā hai

    mujh ko vidā.a karne aa.e haiñ

    is nagrī ke saare baasī

    vo saare din

    jin ke kañdhe par sotī hai

    ab bhī tumhārī zulf ḳhushbū

    saare lamhe

    jin ke māthe par raushan

    ab bhī tumhāre lams Tiikā

    nam āñkhoñ se

    gum-sum mujh ko dekh rahe haiñ

    mujh ko in ke dukh patā hai

    in ko mere ġham ḳhabar hai

    lekin mujh ko hukm-e-safar hai

    jaanā hogā

    vaqt ke agle shahr mujhe ab jaanā hogā

    vaqt ke agle shahr ke saare bāshinde

    sab din sab rāteñ

    jo tum se nā-vāqif hoñge

    vo kab merī baat suneñge

    mujh se kaheñge

    jaao apnī raah lo raahī

    ham ko kitne kaam paḌe haiñ

    jo biitī so biit ga.ī

    ab vo bāteñ kyuuñ dohrāte ho

    kañdhe par ye jholī rakkhe

    kyuuñ phirte ho kyā paate ho

    maiñ be-chāra

    ik banjāra

    āvāra phirte phirte jab thak jā.ūñgā

    tanhā.ī ke Tiile par kar baiThūñgā

    phir jaise pahchān ke mujh ko

    ik banjāra jaan ke mujh ko

    vaqt ke agle shahr ke saare nanhe-munne bhole lamhe

    nañge paañv

    dauḌe dauḌe bhāge bhāge aa jā.eñge

    mujh ko gher ke baiTheñge

    aur mujh se kaheñge

    kyuuñ banjāre

    tum to vaqt ke kitne shahroñ se guzre ho

    un shahroñ koī kahānī hameñ sunāo

    un se kahūñgā

    nanhe lamho!

    ek thī raanī

    sun ke kahānī

    saare nanhe lamhe

    ġhamgīñ ho kar mujh se ye pūchheñge

    tum kyuuñ in ke shahr na aa.iiñ

    lekin un ko bahlā lūñgā

    un se kahūñgā

    ye mat pūchho

    āñkheñ mūñdo

    aur ye socho

    tum hotīñ to kaisā hotā

    tum ye kahtīñ

    tum vo kahtīñ

    tum is baat pe hairāñ hotīñ

    tum us baat pe kitnī hañstīñ

    tum hotīñ to aisā hotā

    tum hotīñ to vaisā hotā

    dhīre dhīre

    mere saare nanhe lamhe

    so jā.eñge

    aur maiñ

    phir haule se uTh kar

    apnī yādoñ jholī kañdhe par rakh kar

    phir chal dūñgā

    vaqt ke agle shahr jānib

    nanhe lamhoñ ko samjhāne

    bhūle lamhoñ ko bahlāne

    yahī kahānī phir dohrāne

    tum hotīñ to aisā hotā

    tum hotīñ to vaisā hotā

    main banjara

    waqt ke kitne shahron se guzra hun

    lekin

    waqt ke is ek shahr se jate jate muD ke dekh raha hun

    soch raha hun

    tum se mera ye nata bhi TuT raha hai

    tum ne mujh ko chhoDa tha jis shahr mein aa kar

    waqt ka ab wo shahr bhi mujh se chhuT raha hai

    mujh ko widaa karne aae hain

    is nagri ke sare basi

    wo sare din

    jin ke kandhe par soti hai

    ab bhi tumhaari zulf ki KHushbu

    sare lamhe

    jin ke mathe par raushan

    ab bhi tumhaare lams ka Tika

    nam aankhon se

    gum-sum mujh ko dekh rahe hain

    mujh ko in ke dukh ka pata hai

    in ko mere gham ki KHabar hai

    lekin mujh ko hukm-e-safar hai

    jaana hoga

    waqt ke agle shahr mujhe ab jaana hoga

    waqt ke agle shahr ke sare bashinde

    sab din sab raaten

    jo tum se na-waqif honge

    wo kab meri baat sunenge

    mujh se kahenge

    jao apni rah lo rahi

    hum ko kitne kaam paDe hain

    jo biti so bit gai

    ab wo baaten kyun dohraate ho

    kandhe par ye jholi rakkhe

    kyun phirte ho kya pate ho

    main be-chaara

    ek banjara

    aawara phirte phirte jab thak jaunga

    tanhai ke Tile par ja kar baiThunga

    phir jaise pahchan ke mujh ko

    ek banjara jaan ke mujh ko

    waqt ke agle shahr ke sare nanhe-munne bhole lamhe

    nange panw

    dauDe dauDe bhage bhage aa jaenge

    mujh ko gher ke baiThenge

    aur mujh se kahenge

    kyun banjare

    tum to waqt ke kitne shahron se guzre ho

    un shahron ki koi kahani hamein sunao

    un se kahunga

    nanhe lamho!

    ek thi rani

    sun ke kahani

    sare nanhe lamhe

    ghamgin ho kar mujh se ye puchhenge

    tum kyun in ke shahr na aain

    lekin un ko bahla lunga

    un se kahunga

    ye mat puchho

    aankhen mundo

    aur ye socho

    tum hotin to kaisa hota

    tum ye kahtin

    tum wo kahtin

    tum is baat pe hairan hotin

    tum us baat pe kitni hanstin

    tum hotin to aisa hota

    tum hotin to waisa hota

    dhire dhire

    mere sare nanhe lamhe

    so jaenge

    aur main

    phir haule se uTh kar

    apni yaadon ki jholi kandhe par rakh kar

    phir chal dunga

    waqt ke agle shahr ki jaanib

    nanhe lamhon ko samjhane

    bhule lamhon ko bahlane

    yahi kahani phir dohrane

    tum hotin to aisa hota

    tum hotin to waisa hota
