shaam ko terā hañs kar milnā

din bhar ujrat hotī hai

sham ko tera hans kar milna

din bhar ki ujrat hoti hai

laḌkiyāñ maaoñ jaise muqaddar kyuuñ rakhtī haiñ

tan sahrā aur aañkh samundar kyuuñ rakhtī haiñ

laDkiyan maon jaise muqaddar kyun rakhti hain

tan sahra aur aankh samundar kyun rakhti hain

akele ghar meñ bharī dopahar sannāTā

vahī sukūn vahī umr bhar sannāTā

akele ghar mein bhari dopahar ka sannaTa

wahi sukun wahi umr bhar ka sannaTa

terā naam likhtī haiñ uñgliyāñ ḳhalāoñ meñ

ye bhī ik duā hogī vasl duāoñ meñ

tera nam likhti hain ungliyan KHalaon mein

ye bhi ek dua hogi wasl ki duaon mein
