jaane andar kyā huā maiñ shor sun kar ai 'salīm'

us jagah pahuñchā to dekhā band vo darvāza thā

jaane andar kya hua main shor sun kar ai 'salim'

us jagah pahuncha to dekha band wo darwaza tha

jis aag se dil sulag rahe the

ab us se dimāġh jal rahe haiñ

jis aag se dil sulag rahe the

ab us se dimagh jal rahe hain

maiñ vo ma.anī-e-ġham-e-ishq huuñ jise harf harf likhā gayā

kabhī āñsuoñ bayāz meñ kabhī dil se le ke kitāb tak

main wo mani-e-gham-e-ishq hun jise harf harf likha gaya

kabhi aansuon ki bayaz mein kabhi dil se le ke kitab tak
