aa jaa.e na dil aap bhī aur kisī par

dekho mirī jaañ aañkh laḌānā nahīñ achchhā

aa jae na dil aap ka bhi aur kisi par

na bosa lene dete hain na lagte hain gale mere

abhi kam-umr hain har baat par mujh se jhijakte hain

gulābī gaal par kuchh rañg mujh ko bhī jamāne do

manāne do mujhe bhī jān-e-man tyauhār holī meñ

gulabi gal par kuchh rang mujh ko bhi jamane do

manane do mujhe bhi jaan-e-man tyauhaar holi mein

abhi to aae ho jaldi kahan hai jaane ki

uTho na pahlu se Thahro zara kidhar ko chale

jahāñ dekho vahāñ maujūd merā kirshn pyārā hai

usī sab hai jalva jo jahāñ meñ āshkārā hai

jahan dekho wahan maujud mera kirshn pyara hai

usi ka sab hai jalwa jo jahan mein aashkara hai

but-e-kāfir jo mujh se ḳhafā ho

nahīñ kuchh ḳhauf merā bhī ḳhudā hai

but-e-kafir jo tu mujh se KHafa ho

nahin kuchh KHauf mera bhi KHuda hai

ġhāfil itnā husn pe ġhurra dhyān kidhar hai tauba kar

āḳhir ik din sūrat ye sab miTTī meñ mil jā.egī

ghafil itna husn pe ghurra dhyan kidhar hai tauba kar

aaKHir ek din surat ye sab miTTi mein mil jaegi

baat karne mein jo lab us ke hue zer-o-zabar

ek saat mein tah-o-baala zamana ho gaya

qabr meñ rāhat se so.e the na thā mahshar ḳhauf

ye kah do bas maut se ho ruKHsat kyun nahaq aai hai us ki shamat

ki dar talak wo masih-KHaslat meri ayaadat ko aa chuke hain

aisā bargashta kisī na muqaddar hogā

ai 'rasa' jaisa hai bargashta zamana hum se

aisa bargashta kisi ka na muqaddar hoga
