nahīñ aatī to yaad un mahīnoñ tak nahīñ aatī

magar jab yaad aate haiñ to aksar yaad aate haiñ

nahin aati to yaad un ki mahinon tak nahin aati

magar jab yaad aate hain to aksar yaad aate hain

Hasrat Mohani

umr-e-darāz maañg ke laa.ī thī chaar din

do aarzū meñ kaT ga.e do intizār meñ

a long life, four days in all, I did negotiate

two were spent in hope and two were spent in wait

umr-e-daraaz mang ke lai thi chaar din

do aarzu mein kaT gae do intizar mein

a long life, four days in all, I did negotiate

two were spent in hope and two were spent in wait

Seemab Akbarabadi

qarār dil ko sadā jis ke naam se aayā

vo aayā bhī to kisī aur kaam se aayā

qarar dil ko sada jis ke nam se aaya

wo aaya bhi to kisi aur kaam se aaya

Jamal Ehsani

kaash dekho kabhī TuuTe hue ā.īnoñ ko

dil shikasta ho to phir apnā parāyā kyā hai

kash dekho kabhi TuTe hue aainon ko

dil shikasta ho to phir apna paraya kya hai
